ASIMO amazed New Englanders during its stop at the Museum of Science in Boston.
To learn more visit Museum of Science
Although Boston is a city well known for "lobstah” and “the green monstah,” it is also a city dedicated to science. As one of the oldest cities in the country, Boston is home to over 48 colleges and universities and to some of the most advanced scientific research in the world. And, Bostonians showed their unabashed enthusiasm for science and technology during ASIMO's visit to the Boston Museum of Science July 24 through July 27 – its first-ever appearance in New England.
Over 4,000 people from all over New England turned out to see the world’s most advanced humanoid robot dance the hula, walk a figure-eight, balance on one leg and even climb a set of stairs. Kids and adults from Massachusetts, Vermont, Maine, Connecticut, New Hampshire, and Rhode Island eagerly waited in lines that wrapped all the way around the museum for a chance to see this amazing technology. Every demonstration drew a full-capacity crowd, but kids sat in the aisles and adults stood in back so that everyone waiting in line had a chance to say “hello” to ASIMO in Boston.
