Honda’s ASIMO has new home in Disneyland
Anaheim, California – ASIMO, the Honda creation that is the world’s most advanced humanoid robot, has a new home in the Honda ASIMO Theater inside Disneyland Park. Guests can view ASIMO (Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility) in an all-new live science show, opening today as part of the theme park’s 50th anniversary celebration.
ASIMO will partner with a live host and operate in a modern home environment, walking forward and backward, climbing and descending a flight of stairs and taking directions from a person.
“We are excited to showcase ASIMO’s remarkable capabilities in Innoventions at Disneyland, where visitors gain first-hand experience with cutting-edge technologies,” said Koichi Kondo, president and CEO of American Honda Motor Co., Inc. “Our hope is that ASIMO will inspire young people to dream of what technology will make possible in the future.”
The show will take place several times a day at the Honda ASIMO Theater, the only permanent installation of ASIMO in North America.
