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.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
