ASIMO can recognise moving objects, postures, gestures, its surrounding environment, sounds and faces, which enable it to interact with humans. ASIMO has 2 camera 'eyes' in its head and can also determone distance and direction. ASIMO can follow people and face them when they approach.
They can shake hands, wave, point and do sign language

ASIMO can recognize about 10 different faces and address them by name.

ASIMO can pick up a glass bottle and twist off the cap, or hold a soft paper cup to pour a liquid without squishing it.

Wouldn't this be great to have an ASIMO at home!!!

Henohenomoheji (へのへのもへじ)  is a face drawn by Japanese school children using ひらがなcharacters

This one says へおおくのむ
this one is へままつゆひ

What characters can you see in this one?

You can also draw animals。
Try and guess what characters are drawn in the others and see if you can create your own..
