How to build your own Serge in 2010

From Domestic Robots:

Serge seems to have been inspired by the Ballbot which is able to balance itself on a single spherical wheel while traveling about but what makes Serge interesting is the effortless ability to interact with humans and their home while providing a soothing human language response to commands. (...)

Here are some basic "ingredients" to create Serge in 2010:

  • Robotics: Use similar technology as used by the Ballbot or Anybot's Monty
  • A.I.: A mix of speech recognition/feedback system as created by Tellme Networks and Artificial Neural Networks (ANN)
  • Energy Source: Fuel cell technology
  • Home Navigation: A mix of laser SLAM technology as used by the Neato XV-11, visual SLAM technology as seen on Samsung Tango and NorthStar as used on WowWee's Rovio.
  • Home Automation: Medina's Home Automation System.

Ok, so now what? no information or direction to builder robotic groups? Nothing? Sweet. this why we gave up on real news reporters so uninformed dips can post and deflect. Great job home reporter.
