Whenever the day's got you down, there's nothing like watching Honda's Asimo robot take a face plant to turn your frown upside down. At this year's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, however, the Japanese automaker and future master of Japan's robot army, Honda, had a chance to redeem its robot on stage. This time, Asimo not only climbed up and down stairs, it also danced liked Justin Timberlake circa 2001, bent it like Beckham, and ran across the stage and around in a circle, each step lifting its entire body off the ground for .08 seconds. We salute you Asimo, our robot master! (Just practicing.)

Check out the video of Asimo's performance after the jump.

      For some reason that robot is creepy. Sure I like I think its cool...but something is just creepy about it.....

      Not bad for a kid in a plastic Halloween costume. Nearly looks like a real robot.

      Asimo; be at my office on Monday, I'll give you the keys to the door. No one will notice the difference. If you need me I'll be at the golf course.

      @ #8 dionysus - uh, automatic transmissions have torque converters. Those are crap no matter how you slice it. If you want to talk about SMG, DSG, etc etc those are all ENTIRELY different technologies than the automatic transmission.

      @ article
      Honda fixed this faster than GM could pull off a seatbelt recall. Comic!

      For how many years now has Honda been trotting out the Asimo dog and pony show? Seriously, this is impressive, but where are we going with this?

      Robots performing human tasks is a old story, but tomorrow those automats enter aereas only sience fiction movies had entered before.
      Who wants t go to a dentist, who has bad eyside, wasighting all night with his wife and has not sleptvery well lately, when thee is a automat thathas none of those issues and anyway wil do a better job.
      This outlok is by my opinion a good positive outlook, we are going to live in a clean paradize. As our society emerges into a automatic society we need to embrace families without children. We do not need to bread retrement payees no more. Children will be taken for what they are, beautyfull huma beeings, and to have one is a gift of god, a pleasureand enjoyment, a luxury. Like a nice car or a big house or a dog. Small families need incentives for their sacrifice of not havingthe pleasure to have children, and big failies eed to be punished to overpopulate our beautyfull earth.
