Robot Asimo – level 2

25-07-2014 15:00

Asimo made its European debut in Belgium. This robot may soon help people in need.

It can open a bottle and pour a drink. It can also communicate via sign language. Asimo can respond to people and the environment – it can avoid collisions. The smart robot can also dance. Sadly, its battery lasts only around 40 minutes.

Difficult words: people in need (people who need help), environment (things around you).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

Would you like to see robots walking in the streets one day?
