    It was interesting

    They showed some of the earlier prototypes on film of the earlier robots trying to make them walk like a human being, then Asimo walked out from behind the curtains . He did a quick demo of his balancing on one foot, climbing up and down the stairs and even a quick dance . Only lasted about 25 mins, as the battery in Asimo only last about 30 mins hehe.

    Amazing what Honda can come up with
