Honda's newest film Living with Robots, believe it or not, isn't about killer robots that enslave humanity, like in I, Robot, nor is it about a bizarre human/robot family just trying to get by. No, instead this film investigates "humankind's keen interest in robots and how robots can challenge the impossible by saving lives while also holding the promise to become more integrated and helpful in daily life." Sound exciting? Just wait 'til you see the cast. Featuring the world's most famous robot ASIMO and a supporting cast of other, lesser robots, you'll be touched by the on-screen chemistry, the story, and the notion that someday robots may be just as prevalent as cats and dogs. Your own pet robot? The future is now!
Living with Robots was screened at the Sundance Film Festival as part of special appearances by ASIMO. Robotic demonstrations highlighted the advanced technology behind ASIMO and showed how a robot like him could someday help people. Doesn't that sound ASIMO?
