Barack Obama is on a trip to Japan at the moment and took the time to play a bit of soccer with a robot, which was thankfully caught on camera.
I'm not really sure what the worst thing about this video is; the fact that the robot in question is scary as hell and looks one programming mis-step away from total world domination, or the President's rather embarrassing attempt at trapping the football.
ASIMO (Advanced Step in Innovative MObility) is a Japanese robot designed and developed by Honda, yeah the same guys that make cars spend their time on stuff like this!
“I can kick a soccer ball,” the Honda humanoid told the president earlier today.
“OK, come on,” replied Obama, who caught the kick with his foot and complimented the metallic athlete. “That was pretty impressive.”
I for one bow down to our new ball-kicking overlords, whenever the Terminator/iRobot rebellion happens.
