Robots are taking their sweet time

Standard

 …to conquer the world.  And they’re striving to get in good graces of the Classical music crowd.

Honda’s Humanoid Robot, ASIMO can perform several activities and next month it will add ‘Conductor’ to the list of accomplishments.  Honda has partnered with the Detroit Symphony Orchestra; they will provide scholarship assistance, funding for programs, etc.  ASIMO will actually conduct the orchestra in a one-off performance for students of the Detroit School for the Arts.

Sounds cool.  Didn’t you think we’d have a lot more stories about robots by 2008?

Check out the Honda site for more info about ASIMO.  (There are some other cool activities posted as well – I love the hot air balloon!)
