ASIMO at Sundance 2011

Honda is at the 2011 Sundance Film Festival promoting their latest short film “The Underlying Dream” (watch it at YouTube).  They’ve also brought along ASIMO to do the same old tricks (walking, running, and going and up and down stairs), though that didn’t seem to disappoint the visitors.  Of course, we’re anxiously awaiting something new.  What happens if ASIMO loses its balance and falls over?  Can it stand back up again?  We’ve never seen ASIMO do that.  And what about all those university labs that are working with ASIMO?  Professor Oussama Khatib at Stanford has been working on making ASIMO’s limbs compliant, for example.  Let’s see something new, Honda!
