ASIMO PSA Teaches Kids How To Cross The Street

This video is actually pretty old, but I thought it was worth sharing because it’s kind of fun.  It features the first version of Honda’s humanoid to be called ASIMO, so it probably dates back to 2001 or 2002.  After watching ASIMO interacting with kids on the street (it’s all planned ahead of time, of course) one can’t help but wonder if we’ll ever live in a world when robots wander our neighborhoods looking to do good deeds?  And when will robots like ASIMO have the artificial intelligence to cross the street safely on their own?
