Apparently a recent Japanese newspaper report stating that Honda is improving the ASIMO robots manipulation ability so that it can assist in emergencies like the March Fukushima nuclear incident was just wishful thinking or supposition on the part of the reporter. The company has denied that it is actively working on that type of project and continues to position the robot as a research and technology effort as well as a valuable marketing presence.
