If you are watching this the visual music interface guy stops talking over the top at around the 8.35 mark..so its worth persevering.  Looks like NAO had trouble with the Red ball , maybe try polarized prescription sun glasses ha ha. I suspect the NAO cameras cannot change their focal lengths. Make it short sighted so the close red round ball with sharp edges can be seen against the fuzzy background..!?

IT News & Career Tips

The NAO robot from Aldebaran Robotics is a popular humanoid robot used to teach robotics by over 600 universities worldwide in fields such as programming, electronics, mathematics, mechanics, control, image processing, voice recognition, and navigation.

Nao (pronounced now) is an autonomous, programmable humanoid robot developed by Aldebaran Robotics, a French robotics company headquartered in Paris. 

The robot's development began with the launch of Project Nao in 2004. On 15 August 2007, Nao replaced Sony's robot dog Aibo as the robot used in the RoboCup Standard Platform League (SPL), an international robot soccer competition. The Nao was used in RoboCup 2008 and 2009, and the NaoV3R was chosen as the platform for the SPL at RoboCup 2010.(Wikipedia)

The various versions of the Nao robotics platform feature either 14, 21 or 25 degrees of freedom (DoF). A specialised model with 21 DoF and no actuated hands was created for the Robocup competition. All Nao Academics versions feature an inertial measurement unit with accelerometer, gyrometer and four ultrasonic sensors that provide Nao with stability and positioning within space. The legged versions included eight force-sensing resistors and two bumpers.

The Nao robot also features an onboard Linux-powered multimedia system, including four microphones (for voice recognition and sound localization), two speakers (for text-to-speech synthesis) and two HD cameras (for computer vision, including facial and shape recognition). 

The robot comes with a software suite that includes a graphical programming tool ("Choregraphe"), simulation software and a software developer's kit. 

Nao is also compatible with the Microsoft Robotics Studio, Cyberbotics Webots, and the Gostai Urbi Studio. An upgraded version of the robot, featuring enhanced multilingual speech synthesis, will be released in 2014
