ASIMO Runs onto Disneyland Stage
ASIMO's New Capabilities Featured in Stage Show in "Innoventions"
|Anaheim, Calif. U.S.A., August 29, 2007– With the ability to run nearly 4 miles per hour, ASIMO is advancing closer to in-home applications. Disneyland park guests can experience ASIMO's latest capabilities at the Honda ASIMO Theater inside the Innoventions attraction.
In the Say 'Hello' to Honda's ASIMO show, park guests can see 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 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.
