Honda Gives Asimo A Redesign

It's been 13 long years since Honda did any major redesigning of its stair-stumblin' Asimo robot. Now, they're about ready to unveil P4, the fourth version of Asimo.

P4 looks a bit more lithe than the P3, although it's still definitely a big clunky robot that I wouldn't expect to be able to beat anybody in a fast walking contest. But with 34 joints and a more flexible waist, it's supposed to be able to dance better than ever before. And if a robot can't dance, what good is it?

There are no videos of the P4 in action available yet, unfortunately, but you can be sure Honda won't be shy about spreading around video of its dancing debut. [Response via PlasticPals via CrunchGear]
