Promising but doesn't work! It looks to be like something really good, but I too am having problems with the robot falling over when it tries to stand up. It seems like it is trying to sit down, as with the other comment, as even when I give it support manually it buckles at the knees. If there is a fix available that would be brilliant! Please let us know if there is. I am also using a NAO NextGen robot on a Galaxy Nexus (Jellybean V4.1.2).

Not working with NAO next Gen and Android 4.0 Hi there, I´m using an android phone 4.0 (HTC one S) and windows 7.The Nao that I´m using is a next gen with the update 1.12.5. . The connection is possible; however, every time that command stand up to the Nao, he to stand up but immediately he try to sit down. I don´t know exactly why it is working in this way. Could you help me? Do you need a video or something? Do you have an email account to keep in touch?
