Honda Asimo robot runs round in circles at CES 2007

Honda's new Asimo robot made its first appearance in America at CES in Las Vegas. It walked, it talked, it ran round in circles -- and then it was confronted by the stairs

Will it fare better in its first outing in Las Vegas, or will the pressure of performing in front of a large crowd prove too much for it?
