ASIMO, Honda's increasingly uncanny humanoid robot, has finally impressed enough Hollywood producers to get his own show. The running, walking, talking, stair-climbing Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility (aka ASIMO) takes the stage at Honda's ASIMO Theater in the Tomorrowland section of Disneyland. You'll be treated to a 15-minute show in which ASIMO interacts with a live host and shows off how he will act when he finally makes it into private homes. Apparently, one of ASIMO's principal roles in our robotic future will be to "act as a servile companion to those most in need of physical assistance." That sounds like the beginning of I, Robot to us, but what do we know? And if your name is Sarah Connor, you might want to skip that attraction for now.

        @Bryan
        Seriously.
        Why don't you tell us about the new Mitsubishi TVs or Suzuki bikes.

        Just because its Honda doesn't make it automotive news.

      Sadly, he doesn't have enough torque to walk up stairs,and sounds like a leaf blower when trying to walk past more powerful robots - fortunately he'll find a second life 10 years from now in my local ghetto...

      He was there when I was at Disneyland in Nov 2005

      Unless he's got a new building, I saw the ASIMO theater at Disneyland a year ago at the Innoventions pavilion, so perhaps this isn't new news?

        Nah this isn't new news...I've seen him twice at Disneyland and both times were quite a while ago.
