While visiting the Miraikan Science Expo in Tokyo, Japan, President Barack Obama spent a brief moment with Honda's Asimo Robot. Asimo, which made a recent debut in the US, showed off its new skills by running, jumping, and rambling in its awkward robotic voice. During the presentation, Asimo bowed to President Obama and then punted a soccer ball. Though it was a 'pretty impressive' kick, President Obama was able to intercept it. Not surprisingly, someone managed to record a video of all of this.
