Japanese Robot Shows Up Obama At Soccer
Among his stops during his visit to Japan, President Obama met up with a soccer playing robot:
During his visit to Japan, at the Tokyo Miraikan Science Expo, President Barack Obama had a brief encounter with Honda’s humanoid robot ASIMO, The Wall Street Journal reports.
