Asimo the humanoid robot shows off his new tricks


Asimo is a humanoid robot created by Honda.

He's been around since 2006 but this week he's been showing off some new tricks.

He demonstrated skills like going up and coming down stairs, kicking a football and pouring liquid into a cup.

All these skills may seem easy to you and I, but to a robot they're extremely hard to perform.

Honda say that this kind of humanoid robot will become part of our lives in the future, helping with basic tasks in our homes.

But that's a way off yet and for now, we'll just enjoy seeing Asimo bust his moves for the cameras.
