Snapshot: US President Obama meets Honda's tech masterpeice, Asimo

Asimo, Honda's humanoid robot has made history of sorts greeted U.S. President Barack Obama at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation (known as “Miraikan”) in Tokyo, Japan yesterday.

Asimo greeted President Obama in English – “Mr. President, I am Asimo, a humanoid robot. It is a pleasure to meet you.”  Asimo then demonstrated some of its signature moves including running, kicking a ball and jumping.

Honda is conducting robotics research for the purpose of creating robots that help people while coexisting with people in society. ASIMO also expressed its future goal to President Obama – “I keep training every day so that someday in the future I can help people in their homes.”

Since its introduction in 2000, Asimo has met a number of VIPs from other countries. However, this was the first time for Asimo to meet a U.S. President. Asimo has also been to India and was part of Honda's stand at the Auto Expo in 2010, managing to awe crowds who came to visit the event. ?
