I love Asimo!

Have you seen this commerical before?

It's about Honda's humanoid robot which walks, gaits, runs at a moderate speed like a human. This robo has lot of intelligence embedded in it, the best is gesture movement recogonition. The subtle mode of communication used by humans is gestures. Understanding gestures is easy, teaching them to a human is easy, but programming them as rules to a machine is a nightmare.
