Photographer's Note

Even though he is only 130 cm tall and weights only 54 kilograms, ASIMO is a world's celebrity. If you ever meet him, don't be surprised that he can charm even you - being a humanoid robot that's his job. Honda started with the first robot experimental projects in 1986, developing the first humanoid prototype model in 1993, until the first ASIMO was born in 2000. The now actual version of ASIMO is from 2005, with the slight improvements in 2007. He can walk, run, climb the stairs, dance, he can understand voice and gesture commands, people's movements, he can recognize the environment, distinguish sounds, recognize faces. He can charge himself and access Internet...

After finishing with his show, he always waves to the people. The most fascinating thing is that everybody waves back!
