Goddamn Droid Conducts Detroit Symphony

Honda's ASIMO droid conducted the Detroit Symphony Orchestra last night.

The Honda Motor Co. designed ASIMO (Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility) can run, walk on uneven slopes and respond to simple voice commands. ASIMO mimicked the actions of a conductor who was videotaped beforehand.

Droves of laid-off Motown autoworkers replaced by Japanese robots could not be reached for comment at press time.
