Honda’s Newest ASIMO Humanoid Robot Runs Onto Disneyland Stage
New Robot Capabilities Featured in Stage Show in “Innoventions”
With the ability to run nearly 4 miles per hour, the all-new ASIMO (Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility) humanoid robot is advancing closer to in-home applications. Beginning today, Disneyland park guests can experience the latest version of ASIMO at the Honda ASIMO Theater inside the Innoventions attraction.
In the Say ’Hello’ to Honda’s ASIMO show, park guests can see the newest ASIMO interact with a live host in a 15-minute science show. The show demonstrates ASIMO’s latest technological advancements including several new mobility and artificial intelligence capabilities for enhanced human interaction, in addition to the ability to run.
Originally opened in June 2005 as part of the theme park’s 50th Anniversary celebration, the Honda ASIMO Theatre gives visitors a glimpse into a not-too-distant future when humanoid robots, like ASIMO, will assist humans in their homes. Park guests see ASIMO operate in a modern home environment by using all of its unique technological capabilities, such as running, walking forward and backward, climbing and descending a flight of stairs and taking direction from a person.
The only permanent installation of ASIMO in North America, Say ’Hello’ to Honda’s ASIMO demonstrations take place several times daily in Innoventions. More information about ASIMO and the Say ’Hello’ to Honda’s ASIMO show is available at asimo.honda.com.
