Honda Makes Life With Robots Possible
Honda may be best known for making small cars, but the company is also known for it's research and development into robots. Honda's latest video released on the company's You Tube channel, shows the company is preparing a consumer friendly robot. The company's efforts have gone beyond the logistics of creating a robot and are now focused on creating robots that people will not fear. Their latest creation is a biped robot that does not feauture recognizable facial characteristics precisely, because their research shows those features are turn offs. Instead the company is making their robots smaller and less intimidating. Honda's Asimo robot may be an indication of the company's attempt to create robots for the everyday consumer. Could their be an Asimo robot in your future?
