Honda's New And Improved ASIMO Humanoid Robot

April 22, 2014


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.

    this shit looks terrible... Really it is we have 3d printers this is the best these bitches can come up with?

    At least they've improved upon the beer pouring robot

    The video would have been better if, at the end, ASIMO would have accidentally crushed that guy's hand...

  • keyword: accidentally ;)

    "OPPS, sorry about your hand there, bro. It's just so hard being so superior to organic life, you know?"

    ASIMO remains smug, even after causing bodily harm to humans. Is it a bug or a feature, you decide.

    I'll post this, just to remind all of us why it would have been better if robots kept having a hard time with stairs.

    you left off the best bit where its thinking about the stairs first

    I know, I did not post this video on Youtube. It's the first one that came up when I searched for "ED209 stairs". I actually enjoyed the hesitating part a lot more than the fall itself.
