Just like his beloved grandfather, Avi Reichental is a maker of things. The difference is, now he can use 3D printers to make almost anything, out of almost any material. Reichental tours us through the possibilities of 3D printing, for everything from printed candy to highly custom sneakers.

This time John Daub and Joseph Tame go on location to Honda's headquarters and Welcome Plaza in Tokyo to play with ASIMO. Yes, we have a dance off, race, penalty kick shootout and more! But this episode also dives deeper into Japanese robotics. ★Description★ Japan is in the center of robotics. Robots have been a hit in manga, anime and popular culture for a long time (ex/ Astro Boy created in 1952) and Japanese are very accepting with the technology. Honda envisioned thier humanoid robot over 30 years ago as the ultimate personal assistant and in 2014, they've taken a very close step to making that vision a reality with ASIMO. Joseph and John head to the HONDA'S headquarters and WELCOME PLAZA in Aoyama to hang out with one of the world's most advanced humanoid robot. ASIMO runs. ASIMO hops. ASIMO kicks. ASIMO sings. We got to see it all. The Honda Welcome Plaza presents the ASIMO demo show multiple times per day free of charge. [2014 ASIMO schedule: 13:30, 15:00 plus 11:00 and 16:30 on weekends and holidays] Grab a coffee or tea from the ASIMO cafe and watch the humanoid robot show! The ASIMO project is more than just a robot. The word ASIMO means: Advanced Step in Innovative MObility New technology for giving mobility to humans have sprung up, like the brand new UNI-CUB. It;s like a segway, but it's all controlled in the seat with sensors. It's easy to go forward and backwards, even side to side without hands or feet! Joseph and John try this out at HONDA. It's super cool! Helping John in this episode is Joseph Tame. Special thanks to HONDA, Softbank and Aldebaran's Dr. Angelica Lim.
