Honda Robots?

The Japanese car manufacturer Honda has revealed a new version of its robot Asimo which it claims to be smarter and faster. Oh and it can also hop on one foot.

Now I want to see it do Gangnam Style!

Very impressive. Now let’s see it tackle those stairs again.

That was definitely worthy of a “shameful display” moment. But after having failed his first attempt at a Tokyo presentation in December 2006, a month later, ASIMO demonstrated tasks such as kicking a football and walking up and down a set of stairs at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.

I’ll have to look for that footage.
