One cyanide or two?

This is a short video of Honda demoing the latest version of their ASIMO (Advanced Step in Innovative MObility) humanoid robot. Asimo was first introduced in 2000, and has since undergone a series of upgrades that make him less likely to fall up and down stairs like he was so good at in the beginning. Which is a shame, because I liked him better back then. After all, he is supposed to be a HUMANOID robot, and what's more human than making mistakes? "GW? You're over-thinking this." I HAVE NOTHING BETTER TO DO.

Keep going for the video.

Thanks to Wi!! and C Hatch, who agree that little f***er moves way too human to not be a child in a robot costume.
