Asimo robot goes for a jog: "David Pescovitz:

In this video, Honda's Asimo robot goes for a jog across the stage at this week's Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas. It's much happier than this pathetic clip of Asimo falling down some stairs. From Popular Science:

While it may look like a child astronaut urgently needing a restroom (or a child astronaut who has mastered a sort of fast-motion pimp walk), Asimo's four-mph jog--in which both feet leave the ground for a brief .08 seconds at the height of the stride-—is nonetheless a pretty amazing sight.
