VIDEO: Honda debuts next-gen Asimo at CES that can climb stairs without smashing face plate

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.
