The Leaf is an interesting artificial intelligence and vision robotic system. It is open source, software and construction details are available on the Leaf Project Web site.

There are three Leaf system developers:
* Bruce Weimer who has made some other very interesting systems.
* Robin Hewitt, she likes to see what makes robots tick.
* Alex Brown who, no surprise, has also made some interesting robots.

“From Left to right is Robin with her robot Mabel, Bruce with his robot Leaf, and Alex with Rocky.

All are equipped with microphones, speakers and webcam. Bruce’s robot shows the sophisticated CSLU animated face; and Rocky shows the simpler animation image. In addition, Rocky shows an image captured from his webcam.”
