Created by Aldebaran Robotics, NAO is a 58-cm tall humanoid robot with 25 degrees of freedom, designed to be fully and easily programmable. We will first introduce its basic software and hardware architecture, and then show how to develop applications using the Java SDK: either to develop a brain for your robot in pure Java or a remote controller for an android device.

If Java is your favorite language, combining it with your imagination will give you the ability to create unique behaviors for NAO!
