Asimo the first advanced humanoid robot

ASIMO was the world's first advanced humanoid robot and in many respects the beginning of what we here at Communist Robot fondly refer to as "The Future."
ASIMO, the worlds most advances humanoid robot makes its debut in the year 2000. The name ASIMO stands for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility, and is pronounced "ashimo" in Japanese, meaning "legs also" (from Japanese "足も"). This little robot is the result of 14 years of dedicated scientific research done by Honda into the mechanics of bipedal locomotion. About 40 of the old 2000 model ASIMO's are currently touring the world in promotional capacity.
