Impromptu Art Critic, round 2

Drawings2-header

In this second batch of kid’s drawings of Honda’s humanoid robot ASIMO, they get inventive.  Originally I planned to go into this thing in full-on mockery mode but I just can’t – these are simply too awesome.  So without further ado, let’s dive right in.  If for some reason you happened to miss the first installment, check it out here.

31. Someone stuck a pin in him, and now ASIMO is deflating.

ASIMO-kids32

32. An artist emotionally unhinged, after having to bid farewell to his robotic companion.

ASIMO-kids33

33. This Knight-like ASIMO wields a light saber and arm cannon, with sniper scope and antennae attached to his head.  But perhaps of all the additions, most notable are his new toes!

ASIMO-kids35

34. Part Bumblebee, part WALL-E, this Caterpillar ASIMO looks like he means business.

ASIMO-kids36

35. ASIMO teaches us the value of the metric system.  Damn Americans!  Convert already!

ASIMO-kids37

36. A happy domestic scene in which ASIMO takes on a distinctly female appearance, seen wearing a dress while watering some flowers.

ASIMO-kids38

37. ASIMO is shocked to learn of his new transformation ability, granted by this young artist, which he discovers only at the point of take-off.

ASIMO-kids39

38. Similar to #38, Super ASIMO has a pair of wings and is about to take off.  The artist made sure to add ASIMO’s big saucer-like eyes where they belong, too.

ASIMO-kids40

39. ASIMO’s vast computerized brain comes to the rescue of this student, who doesn’t want to do a math quiz.

ASIMO-kids41

40. This “Super Robot” has more in common with a preschool Dracula than Honda’s humanoid.  Love the green pants.

ASIMO-kids42

41. ASIMO is fat, but in a good way, like Jolly Saint Nick.

ASIMO-kids44

42. ASIMO is the devil.  But wait, later on he’ll be saved.

ASIMO-kids45

43. ASIMO’s dream of becoming a real boy is finally realized.  Wait, wrong story!

ASIMO-kids46

44. ASIMO offers a happy greeting in this remarkably accurate depiction of the robot (in the Japanese tradition, the sun is depicted as red).  Interesting how ASIMO is so realistic yet the other elements are not.

ASIMO-kids47

45. ASIMO finds religion?

ASIMO-kids48

46. C3PO is distracted by a pair of fashionable cat/bunny ears.

ASIMO-kids49

47. This will be worth money someday, when the artist becomes a world famous comic artist.  I think “Rescue ASIMO” ought to be the new mascot for the Red Cross.  Don’t you?  Fantastic work.

ASIMO-kids50

48. This is the cutest thing I have ever seen.  You can tell she was sitting next to #45, who is probably her BFF.

ASIMO-kids51

49. I don’t know what she’s looking for, but ASIMO is dutifully helping her.

ASIMO-kids53

50. Is it just me, or does ASIMO look like a mischievous little bugger?  Do I smell primetime sitcom?

ASIMO-kids54

51. Little did anyone know that ASIMO’s battery backpack actually contained fairy wings.  Also, look at how detailed and accurate his hand is – that’s incredible!

ASIMO-kids56

52. Cross-dresser ASIMO has legs to die for.  But seriously, it’s interesting how humans of all ages arbitrarily assign gender to a robot.

ASIMO-kids57

53. ASIMO’s legs have become disconnected at the knees, revealing rockets which allow him to deliver the mail faster than you can say “utility belt”!

ASIMO-kids58

54. HOLY CRAP.  I told you these were good, but you didn’t believe me, did you?  Here’s another sprouting mecha designer.  I knew I should have expected this from Japanese kids, but damn this kid can draw better than me!

ASIMO-kids60

55. ASIMO is drawn as a lumbering buffoon with a cinder block for a head.  Ouch.  Better work on that A.I., Honda.

ASIMO-kids61

56. Poor ASIMO’s arms have been run over by a steamroller.  But we can rebuild him.  We have the technology.

ASIMO-kids64

57. ASIMO is to Adam as ASIMI is to Eve.  Hey, even a robot’s got to have love in his life.  And a dog/cat(?).

ASIMO-kids63

58. “I met ASIMO, and all I got was this stinkin’ t-shirt!”

ASIMO-kids65

59. A delightful Doraemon / ASIMO mash up.

ASIMO-kids66

60. ASIMO 2 P3 Version.  Apparently this kid likes ASIMO pretty much the way he is, but would have kept the Honda P3’s (third prototype’s) bigger arms.  Those poor Honda engineers just can’t win!

ASIMO-kids67

61. ASIMO’s face shield provides the perfect cover for an earlier, unwanted message.

ASIMO-kids68

62.  This kid wasn’t impressed by the state-of-the-art robot, and suggests they bring him an alien next time.

ASIMO-kids69

63. JAZZ HANDS!

ASIMO-kids70

64. I’m not entirely sure what has happened to ASIMO, but I still think it’s pretty darn cute.

ASIMO-kids71

65. Try as he might, ASIMO is simply no match for Doraemon (apparently).

Well, that about wraps up our look at Children’s Drawings of ASIMO.  Hope you had fun.  Feel free to add your own captions in the comments!
