I am following advancements in robotics and have posted a couple of threads about Boston Dynamic's line of R&D military grade-robots.

However, Honda's Asimo, which is being developed as a domestic helper and office helper, is very impressive.

He isn't ready to go on the market yet, and is getting yet another upgrade in software that will allow him to do even more.

The tasks you see him performing in these video clips are being done autonomously, without an operator.

The video gets much better at 6:40 when he starts running and hopping on one foot!
