Crave TV caught up with Honda's Asimo robot at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas and interviewed his keeper, Geoffrey Smith. Asimo is a fully mobile, human-like robot. Asimo has met royalty, walked the red carpet at a Hollywood premier and been inducted into the robot hall of fame.
Asimo's engineers don't simply face a technical challenge in bringing this robot to life, but also a social one. Smith explains how Honda has consciously made design decisions that keep Asimo divided from humans so as to remain non-threatening. Crave also asks, "Do androids dream of electric sheep?" -CS
