Honda Asimo upgraded to new model

Honda is definitely famous for their cars and motorbikes around the world, but there is another aspect of the company that we have come to know and love as well – that is, its ability to delve into the world of robots.

This particular version has also gone to the fat house so to speak, as it will tip the scales at approximately 6kg lighter compared to its predecessor, boasting individually-actuated fingers to boot.

Capable of running around at a top speed of 9 km/h (a mark that surely will not win any gold medals at the Olympics, let alone make it through the first heat), Honda demonstrated some old school stuff that never seemed to get tired – the Asimo hopped around on a single leg, managed to kick a ball around and so forth.
