Me and him were great mates. We used to have lunch in McDonald's every couple of weeks and we talked about cars with each other. Sad to see him go.

Noooo, Asimo! How can you do this Honda! :(

He had such a personality, much more than most robots and if you asked people to name one real life robot they would probably name him.

I don't know Jonny 5 was real. Didn't cut it in personality stakes though

"ASIMO was the first robot to be able to run, with both feet leaving the ground for 0.08s"

I'll just leave this here... seems we've moved on!



[Edit] But is less complex than running, granted!

Per the image caption, it's actually "I love you", but I first thought it was "Rock On". I just figured I'd roll with it.

Yeah, with the thumb out, it's sign language shorthand for "I love you".
