The Japanese car manufacturer Honda has revealed a new version of its robot Asimo which it claims is the cleverest yet.

It says the human-shaped robot can now run faster, open a bottle, pour a drink and hop on one foot.

Some of the robot's technology was used to develop a robotic arm with the intention of helping with the nuclear crisis in northeastern Japan.
