LIVE WITH KELLY AND MICHAEL to Welcome Back ASIMO, 4/15
On Tuesday, April 15, 2014, Kelly Ripa and Michael Strahan will welcome a most unusual guest to top morning talk show "LIVE with Kelly and Michael," when an all-new ASIMO, the world's most advanced humanoid robot, from Honda, makes its North American television debut.
This isn't ASIMO's first appearance on "LIVE" - an earlier version was featured on the show in November of 2004. The new version of ASIMO (which stands for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility), features enhanced hand dexterity, including the ability to sign in both Japanese and American sign language, as well as the ability to run faster than previously, climb stairs more smoothly, hop, jump, balance on one foot, and transition seamlessly between walking and running, among other new and unique capabilities. On April 15, "LIVE's" viewers will be the first TV audience in North America to see ASIMO in action.
