Honda Asimo injured in filming


Well, whilst being filmed at least. The Asimo is Honda’s super-advanced android, you’ve probably stumbled upon it on TV now and again. Anyway, at a recent demonstration the Asimo seemed to stumble on a set of stairs, falling straight onto its back, with his mechanics quick onto the seen to put a screen in place and see to its injuries. You just can’t help but laugh when something designed to mimic human behaviour takes it a step too far. You can see the video via Engadget.Source: Engadget

I know I shouldn't laugh at this for several reasons:

1.) A lot of people have put a lot of time into this and the advancements have been amazing, but very difficult and laughing would be an insult to them.

2.) Because one day that thing will be advanced enough to kick my ass.

3.) I don't want to be insulting the ones controlling it.

However I just can't help myself. :laugh: :laugh: :laugh: :laugh:

Yeah, you can see the knee sort of give out when it tries to take that last step. It sort of just snaps.

on a side note, it was kinda creepy when they put up that thing at the end so that people couldnt see how bad he was hurt....
