Arrow Honda's robot Asimo (Video link)!!

Guys,

Check out this "Asimo", Hondas walking and talking robot. What will humans do if these robots became very smart ? They will take over all labour work which is going to be big threat for the countries like India.

Every action of the Asimo is controlled via remote...by a technician. So this robot is actually not "smart" yet. I think that the Asimo has been over-hyped by Honda, and the only significant development has been the "standing balance" and "movement of limbs / joint" feat by Honda.
