ASIMO robot kicks a soccer ball

President Obama played soccer with ASIMO at Japan's Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation. ASIMO is a robot from Honda that was created in 2000. Honda recently revealed ASIMO's latest abilities, which include hopping and signing, on Live With Kelly and Michael.

ASIMO first introduced himself to the President. ASIMO then said, "I can run really fast" and and started running. In the soccer demonstration, ASIMO said, "I can kick a soccer ball too" and started backing a way from the ball like he was going to kick it really hard. ASIMO then kicked a good shot right to President Obama, who stopped the ball in front of him. Take a look:
