Meet the latest ASIMO, Honda's humanoid robot here..it walks and runs, even up and down stairs. It can open a bottle and serve a drink, and politely tries to shake hands with a stranger.

On Wednesday in Manhattan hotel US debut the hero who spoke "Hello New York! Thank you for coming today!" the little guy chirped in English, the recorded voice of a teenaged boy

ASIMO - decked out in a white suit and helmet - stands 4 feet three inches (1.3 meters) tall and weighs in at 110 lbs (50 kg), looks like an astronaut. It can now jump - as well as sign language abilities. It can now also run at a speed of 5.6 miles per hour (9 km/h). The latest demonstration highlighted the robot's increased flexibility and balance

ASIMO - short for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility - was designed to help people, potentially in cases of reduced mobility. The first model was unveiled in 2000 after 14 years of research during which scientists studied human movements in an effort to replicate them.

Researchers think that one day it could help the elder generation when their ability to get around is reduced - for getting a snack or turning the lights off

Satoshi Shigemi, senior chief engineer at Honda R&D Co., Ltd. Japan responsible for humanoid robotics said "ASIMO was designed to help those in society who need assistance, and Honda believes that these improvements in ASIMO bring us another step closer to our ultimate goal of being able to help all kinds of people in need."

"We need to understand what people expect from ASIMO and what people want ASIMO to do." He added.
