Keepon robot helps autistic children

I just saw this video of Keepon, a robot designed to help autistic children engage socially.
It looks like an old style push button toy, but has 2 cameras (!!) in its head and a microphone in its nose. Awesome bonus: this video (@ 1:25) briefly shows off the mechanics that make Keepon interact.
The second video shows Keepon dancing. It blows me away.
