Media Body: There is an interesting article in the _New Scientist_ entitled:
"Artificial voice system says hello", which includes links to two video
demonstrations of the system (fast connection recommended for these). The
article begins with this paragraph:

"When Hideyuki Sawada says he wants his robots to be articulate, he's
not talking about computer-generated voice synthesis - he wants them to talk
just like humans. So he is designing an entire artificial voice system,
complete with its own lung, windpipe, vocal cords and throat."

Thanks to Colin Whiteley for bringing this article
to my attention.
