ASIMO Actually Runs
Robot skeptics frequently make claims like "Robots like ASIMO aren't really capable of real running...". When we press them on the definition of 'real' running, they usually say that it means that both feet have to be off the ground at the same time. By that definition, and there are certainly many other definitions, ASIMO really does 'run', as you can see the photo above that we took at the Robo-Japan 2008 exhibition today.
