Robots may not be able to do everything humans can, but the latest version of Sony Corp’s humanoid robot has something many people might find useful: a third eye. The extra camera eye on its forehead allows it to see several people at once and focus in on one of them.

At an exhibit on intelligent machines on Friday, Sony unveiled the new and improved QRIO, which walked jauntily toward the audience, swinging its hips to music. “Hello everyone,” it said in Japanese. “I am Sony’s QRIO. Let me introduce you to my new camera and improved arms.” The toddler-sized QRIO, is 23 inches tall and weighs 7.5 kg.
