    Default NTU and NUS create robots to help children develop social skills

    I think it's clear where you should go to to pursue an engineering degree

    note the difference in the words they use,

    the L side one is "programmed" by NTU scientists, and the NAO Robot is actually developed by Aldebaran Robotics, a French robotics company headquartered in Paris. ref: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nao_(robot)

    while on the R side is developed by NUS,

    of course, development from scratch is more time consuming than add feature on existing finished products.

    by the way, both are hard engineering work, maybe R side need more art work.

    Ah I see. I don't know how the robot would have looked like if it was developed by NTU, but the NUS one...leaves much to be desired. Looks like a poor replica of the Annabelle doll. Maybe can make some money selling it to some indie movie maker for horror shows
