Honda Asimo Humanoid Robot debuts in the U.S. during the 2007 CES
Honda will debut the newest version of its ASIMO advanced humanoid robot for the first time in North America at
the 2007 Consumer Electronics Show (CES).

For the first time outside of Japan, ASIMO will demonstrate its latest advancements and even more fluid and quick movements including the ability to run at nearly 4 mph.

This new version of ASIMO also has other new mobility and artificial intelligence capabilities. Nicknamed "ASIMO Type R" for its "revolutionary" ability to "run" at humanlike speeds, the newest ASIMO has made several significant leaps
forward from its predecessor.

The ASIMO can better interact with and carry out commands given by people and can more effectively perform tasks including moving carts and carrying objects.

Honda continues ASIMO's development with the goal of one day producing a robot capable of assisting those who lack full mobility and of working in environments dangerous for humans.
