This is a picture of all versions of the Honda Asimo robot.

Honda has created a walking robot called ASIMO in 2011. ASIMO is an acronym for “Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility.” Honda has started making walking robots since 1980s. In 2013 they started to work on a natural disaster robot which would be based off of the ASIMO. In 2017 they were successfully able to make a robot that was capable of walking up a flight of stairs. The Honda ASIMO lead to the development of the $2500 robot lawnmower. former President Obama has played soccer with the ASIMO robot (video below). This relates to engineering because engineers figured out how to make the robot balance on two feet. Engineers had to figure out how to make the robot see the things around it and interact with objects.
