Scott Broock writes, "This is a fun video about Robot Village in NY that you guys might be interested in". Sebastian Tyl is the first to report the little robot tribute included in the new Mozilla Firefox v3 browser. If you have it, type "about:robots" in the address bar and see what you get. If you haven't upgraded yet, take a look at the screen grab. Meanwhile, The Swirling Brain has swirled out a whole lot of robot links: a Science Daily story on Tartalo the robot, a PC Mag story and an AF press release on AMP, a two wheeled balancing robot that will follow you around playing music. An Electronic house article on the SEGA EMA aka the Electronic Girlfriend. It's not as kinky as it sounds - it's sort of a robot barbie doll. He also noted a PC World story on RepRap, the 3D printer that can replicate itself (well, it can't really but it's a start). There's also a Personal Tech story on Japan's growing concern that Korea is getting ahead of them in the race to commercialize robots. Roland Piquepaille sent us links to his latest blog posts on the Kiel-6000 ROV and the V-Star UAV. Know any other robot news, gossip, or amazing facts we should report? Send 'em our way please.

Sega didn't make E.M.A. It's a WowWee Femisapien that Sega has rebranded for the Japanese market.

The Sega EMA seems to be an alternate release of Wowee's Femisapien.

More importantley, though, they can fight. :)
