Motherboard Maker Micro-Star Debuts E2R-H3

Micro-Star International, better known for its motherboards than its robots, is debuting a small pc-augmented robot at Computex. Capable of voice and face recognition via software on a blue-tooth connected PC, the biped robot can also perform a few tai-chi and kung-fu moves, "albeit slowly" according to the article.

The company is looking for investor to develop the robot for consumer applications.

It looks to me like this might simply be a Robo-one kit combined with a blue-tooth-enabled webcam/microphone.
