In its first ever visit to a theme park, "ASIMO," Honda's humanoid robot, kicked off a series of demonstrations over the 4th of July holiday period at Epcot. During its demonstrations, ASIMO (Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility) delighted audiences by dancing, interacting with guests, and even climbing stairs. The demos will continue through July 11.

Otherwise, Im going to pick up a Toyota.

john peck's avatar Ironic that Test Track is sponsered by GM and Disney have a Honda product in the park now. I guess the new stunt car show Disney is having at MGM soon is going to feature Fast & Furious-styled Hondas and Toyotas
