Uncanny Robot

I know that this unit is about environment, but I can't help but look for the person inside this robot, it looks so human it's almost disturbing. This robot, ASIMO (Asi, Japanese for 'feet' mo short for motion), built by Honda and appered on the TV programme 'QI' Season 9, Episode 13. where I encounted him properly for the first time, though he is quite famous around the worl for his ability to walk like a person, which mechanically speaking is rather dificult.

  1. The japanese translation is intersting - I always thought he was named after Isaac Asimov!
