An anonymous reader writes “Honda has just unveiled a new, upgraded version of its famous humanoid robot, Asimo. Its appearance didn’t change much, but the new robot is lighter, faster, and stronger. It can walk on uneven surfaces, run backwards, and even jump on one foot. The new Asimo also has more dexterous hands and better image and voice recognition to interact with people. Honda’s big push is clearly in the direction of making Asimo more autonomous, and useful, in human environments.”
