Honda's Asimo robot is ready to work in your homeThu, 17 Jul 2014
TECHNOLOGY giant Honda has shown that a robotic personal assistant that can help you in and out of the home is no longer solely the subject of science fiction, with the debut of its latest ASIMO robot.
The humanoid machine has been upgraded so that it can now run, hop and even pick up and interact with objects in the world around it.
Honda has been working on robotics since the 1980s, and this latest incarnation of ASIMO is the most advanced the company has ever produced, with improvements made to movement and reactions.
