I love this pic of Prime Minister Fukuda meeting Asimo at the G8 conference. Whatever you think of the G8 malarchy I think this shot with his wife having a good old giggle is great.

Prime Minister Fukuda with Honda's Asimo Robot

If you fancy meeting Asimo yourself and you're in Tokyo, he makes regular appearances at the Miraikan museum in Odaiba. Mirai means future in Japanese - this is the museum of future science and technologies. You can also climb inside a space capsule and into a deep sea diving machine. hyper.gif

Cheers and all the best,
