Re: The user signals Ballie and it rolls towards him

OK, so the Ballie is a ball-shaped robot with a camera at floor level, looking up. Now, imagine the view it will get if it encounters, say, a Scotsman wearing a kilt in traditional fashion?

No, that isn't an image I'd want broadcasting to the world either.

Basically this thing is a sexual harassment offense waiting to happen. What on earth were Samsung thinking of?
