Everyone’s favorite robot Asimo is now making celebrity appearances. A short 10 minute Documentary film called Living With Robots will be shown at the Sundance Film Festival in Utah, followed by a live appearance by Asimo.
The sixth film release in Honda’s popular Dream the Impossible Documentary Series, “Living With Robots” was directed by award-winning filmmaker, Joe Berlinger, (Brother’s Keeper, Crude, Paradise Lost, Metallica: Some Kind of Monster). The film ponders life with robots such as ASIMO, along with perspectives from science-fiction screenwriters, academics, philosophers, engineers and other thinkers. Designed to someday assist people in their homes, ASIMO is the culmination of more than two decades of research and development by Honda engineers. Attendees have the unique opportunity to experience “Living With Robots” and ASIMO in person for three days only, Fri., Jan. 22, through Sun., Jan. 24, with six shows daily at 11 a.m., 12 p.m., 1 p.m., 3 p.m., 4 p.m. and 5 p.m. Demonstrations will be held at The Village at the Yard, 1251 Kearns Blvd., Park City, Utah.
Looks like Honda will be posting the movie online at some point after it’s round of appearances. Check out all the movies here. We hope Asimo knows how to work the crowd and avoid any embarrassing moments some other celebrities get caught in.
