The Next Generation - Asimo. Yeah, I was just blogging here about the Next Generation Humanoid Robot, targeting a new level of mobility.

Honda added intelligence technology to ASIMO which is capable of interpreting the postures and gestures of humans and moving independently in response. ASIMO’s ability to interact with humans has advanced significantly—it can greet approaching people, follow them, move in the direction they indicate, and even recognize their faces and address them by name.

Further, utilizing networks such as the Internet, ASIMO can provide information while executing tasks such as reception duties of receiving and delivery coffee mug try and pushing the serving cart with drinks.

Following a recent appearance amidst the winter splendour of Helsinki, ASIMO even helped open the 8th International Middle East Motor Show in sun-drenched Dubai.

Integration with user's network system, Asimo can execute functions appropriately based on the user's customer data; greet visitors, informing personnel of the visitor's arrival by transmitting messages and pictures of the visitor's face; guide visitors to a predetermined location, etc. Aso Accessing information via the Internet, ASIMO can become a provider of news and weather updates, for example, ready to answer people's questions, etc.

Amazing!!! New waves of technology and robots will rule one day!
