ASIMO Robot learns Sign Language

Meet ASIMO, one of the world’s most well-known humanoid robots.

ASIMO was created by Japanese manufacturer Honda back in 2000 and is one of the most advanced robots in the world, possessing the ability to walk independently, climb stairs, understand gestures and spoken commands, and mimic many other human functions accurately.

Most recently, ASIMO is now lending his (shiny metallic) hand to Japanese Sign Language as seen at a remarkable demonstration at Honda’s Welcome Place in Aoyama, Tokyo.

Perhaps Robot Interpreters are closer than we think?!
