ASIMO does it best.

Well, I can't speak for anyone else on here, but I'm a true Honda-phile. Don't get me wrong, I like other brands too, Suzuki and Yamaha being my other 2 Japanese favs, but it seems to me like Honda has always just been more 'with it.' Submitted for your approval, ASIMO, the Honda Humanoid Robot conducting the Detroit Symphony Orchestra.

Pretty amazing!

Wonder how long it will be be until we see a bunch of Asimos running around in daily life?

It's a fool who looks for logic in the chambers of the human heart.

I see the future being, if Humanity is ever threatened by robots, (Terminators, Replicants from Blade Runner and the like) It will probably be the little ASIMOs that will always be loyal to humanity. And aren't they just adorable with their little backpacks and spacesuit looking helmets...

Big deal they dressed up Dani Pedrosa as a moon-man and let him guest conduct

I wouldn't mind having one in the garage to hand me tools or something similar. That'd be a heck of a time saver to send him in to gather a forgotten 15mm wrench or something.
