49-Foot-Tall ASIMO Robot

49 Foot Tall ASIMO Robot

Honda has tested a 49-foot replica of their ASIMO humanoid robot, that’s 12 times the height of the original. The animated replica will be a guest of honor at the 120th Rose Parade as well as kick off Honda’s 50th anniversary of U.S. operations.

The creation called “Hats Off in Celebration” will be completed with natural materials like lettuce seed, rice, carnations and strawflower. The float will be joined by the Prairie View A&M University Marching Band, a past participant in the Honda Battle of the Bands featuring the music programs of Historically Black Colleges and Universities.

A few members of the band will ride on the float, which will be immediately followed by the entire marching band. In addition, during the parade the FCX Clarity pace car will be accompanied by the Honda Super Cub motorcycle, the first model sold in the U.S.

  1. Will it move like the original? If so, that’s our new Gundam robot. 🙂

  2. Flommytherobot cautions the promoters of the strange human dancing pageant to proofread very very carefully, so that Giant ASIMO 12X (as we call him) does not read “heads off in celebration,” or “hacks off cerebellum,” as he is a very powerful Giant ASIMO 12X robot!

    Yet his giant tophat is very stylish.

    Flommytherobot is happy to have been of assistance.

  3. Yes, but does he do windows? Now that would be useful. 🙂

  4. Now we’re talking about Hollywood style and size!
