Japanese scientists of Honda unveiled a human-shaped developed version of an interacting robot called “Asimo” which was firstly introduced back in 2000. The intelligent robot can perform many tasks and orders such as getting a drink, opening a thermos flask, pouring out juice and it can even spell out its own name in sign language. This developed robot is able to balance itself on uneven surfaces and hop on one foot.
