The latest version of Honda's Asimo robot is lighter, smaller, and more versatile than previous editions. By way of explaining the headline above, Asimo is capable of opening a beer and pouring it into a cup (I know, Todd used to drink it straight out of the can). Also, he can flash the devil horns sign.

Asimo can detect someone coming near it and get out of the way (unlike Todd) and can differentiate several different voices talking at once. Each of its fingers has a tactile sensor and can move independently.
