Honda's little robot, Asimo, learned how to run at 6km/h just before christmas. and it looks so cute. just like a baby learning.
Asimo can also walk hand-in-hand, push a cart, walk in stairs and recognise faces. a just cant wait for when everybody start to have robots at home, hope i live to see that. i would even like to have an Asimo home doing nothing :D

Here are flash videos of Asimo :hug:

What's cute about a robot?

The technology is clever, but I'm totally against people trying to invent robots that act more human, because it cannot be done. Humans are the only human things there are. Real life cannot be simulated by a simple machine.

Yes it is cute...............but what does it do.:D
I agree Jacob, but didn't you like C3PO from the Star Wars series? And the robot in 'I Robot' was just creepy.

They're both fiction. Plus, I don't watch Star Wars. :ton:

So many people have said so many things cannot be done throughout our history. If we listened to such people we would never have progressed.

I understand that but making a robot that acts like a human is one thing that really cannot be done. :p Have you seen those Japanese ones with faces? SCARY! :yik: Not to mention emotionless and just...automatic. Humans are unique, robots are just metal parts stuck together to do different things.

At this stage, no, but you seem to have a very closed view Jacob. I think it's because really, like so many, you are disturbed by the idea.

What's cute about a robot?
everything. the way he pushes his little cart, that he stops and wait for the girl when she fall behind. the way he squeeze her hand when they walk hand in hand. and he(or she, i dont know what Asimo means) looks very cute when he run- like he is in stealth mood :)
