Question ID: 761114
I am highly interested in NEC's PaPeRo 2005 robot
( As a
UK resident, I am searching for a way to purchase one via the
internet, without having to travel outside of the UK. Could you please
direct me to a website where they are available for import purchase?
If none is available, where can I find information concerning possible
future international sales?
There is no answer at this time.

Dear author of the above comment,

I had the impression that that email addy was a japanese address. But
I suppose it wouldn't hurt to try.

Just wanted to let you know that I emailed NEC already to ask them
about obtaining a robot or two.  I'll let you know if I hear anything
back from them.

Dear pafalafa-ga,

Thanks for the info. Would be very helpful if you hear back from them
before I do. I've emailed them immediately after reading
probonopublico-ga's message, and have not heard back (or received any
automatic confirmation of the receipt of my message) yet. Will post
here if they do.

possibilities of personal robots, there is no sales plan.
