I think Honda’s Asimo needs to call a headhunter. While some of his buds are working as surgeons, or exploring their artistic sides as dancers, what’s “the world’s most advanced humanoid walking robot” doing? Looks like he’s working as a crossing guard. Honda has produced a video for educators in which Asimo teaches kids the safe way to cross streets. While we certainly think that’s admirable, we can’t help but worry that Honda is stifling Asimo’s career ambitions. Still I guess it beats Asimo’s other recent gig: clowning for the kids at Disneyland.
