Honda goes to the movies. Japanese technology company and car maker Honda shows Living With Robots, an all-new short documentary film, will debut at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, Jan. 22nd.
Following the premiere of the documentary is a live 10-minute demonstration of Honda's famous ASIMO (Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility) robot.

This is actually already the sixth film release in Honda's Dream the Impossible Documentary Series. Living With Robots was directed by award-winning filmmaker, Joe Berlinger (Brother’s Keeper, Crude, Paradise Lost, Metallica: Some Kind of Monster).

The film ponders life with robots such as ASIMO, along with perspectives from science-fiction screenwriters, academics, philosophers, engineers and other thinkers. Designed to someday assist people in their homes, ASIMO is the culmination of more than two decades of research and development by Honda engineers.
