HOUSTON -- A cute robot is helping kids with autism. Also, Groupon is giving out free coupons. Here’s today’s Tech talk…

== ASK NAO ==
A company in France has developed a robot called ASK NAO, which stands for Autisum Solution for Kids. Researchers found that children pay more attention to technology, so this cute little robot helps bridge the communication gap in the classroom. It interacts with kids and can assist teachers in presenting lessons. It has lights, can move, and (even though it was designed in France) it can speak English.
