    ASIMO's European Debut

    Hey did anybody see this on the news the robot that honda has now developed big time. It now runs and kicks balls

     

     

    Honda's Running Robot Makes European Debut... Australia's Next

    The latest generation of Honda's humanoid robot, ASIMO, has made its European debut in Barcelona.

    Honda's ASIMO will make its Australian debut during a tour later this year. 

    The new ASIMO incorporates several significant technological advancements over its predecessors, including a more streamlined design, even more fluid and quick movements and the ability to run at almost 6 km/h (4 mph). The agile robot also has several other new mobility and intelligence capabilities.

    The European debut was held during II Jornades de Robòtica at the Barcelona Biomedical Research Park and organised in partnership with the Barcelona City Council as part of the city's 'Year of Science' activities. The new ASIMO will be in Barcelona until 29 September where it will be performing a number of special shows for the general public and the city's school children.

    Honda Australia will announce details of ASIMO's tour "down under" in the next few weeks.

    ..... where it will be put through its paces in serving and delivering beer, cook'n the bbq without burning the meat and pressing the mute button during the game so you don't have to listen to the crappy ads during the breaks.

     

    If it can do all this, where do I sign?

    If it can do all that then the Aussie male might be obselete

    No, it just means that the Aussie male can kick back and drink more beer without being nagged.

    Good I'm not obsolete.

    So that means the place of the Aussie male in society has been elevated.

    Re: ASIMO's European Debut

    I wouldn't say elevated.  It will depend on what programming can offer
