Asimo – more than a toy
I find myself constantly surprised and amazed at the level technology and science can meet in creating inspiring inventions and get closer to realizing “old” familiar concepts. Asimo is one good example of that. There is so much invested in this Robot to such inspiring results. I really believe this level of artificial intelligence is only the tip of the tongue of what’s next.
It’s a remarkable learning creation that is quite successful thanks to some clever (or cheesy – take your pick) marketing. But I can’t help but wishing this cute little robot looked LESS like a toy and treated as such, and had some MORE “authentic” humanistic features… show us some skin, right? Although, looking through its evolution and early prototypes, I guess I shouldn’t complain. 🙂
