Asimo is an ongoing robotic technology of Honda and, if you ask me, the best robotic simulation of human movement to date. Honda’s been at this project for quite a long time and Asimo gets better as the years go by.
Shown below is a video of an Asimo dance team performing on stage. This is not your typical robotic demo but rather a spot-on synchronization of movements of the robotic dancers. These are not humans in costumes. There’s no room for their feet if they were.
The video is a little drawn out (4+ minutes) and tends to repeat itself down the line, but after a few minutes, you’ll be amazed. A little Kung Fu rap, anyone?
