There have been great advancements in processing power and computer vision plus making robot control systems much easier to work with (such as Ez-Robot).

There have been some advanced achievements by community members in terms of visuals, but I've yet to see learning and expression like Kismet had as in this video. I'd love to see some projects that do make some attempts at this though.
