When you witness this bipedal humanoid robot hopping in a circle on one foot, taking a few steps back to line up a kick to a soccer ball, or transitioning smoothly from a walk to a slow jog, you have to remind yourself that you’re not looking at a person in a robot suit or some sort of computer-generated special effect. This is an autonomous mechanical being, capable of walking around on two legs and making its own decisions based on input from its sensors. Its name, an acronym that stands for “Advanced Step In Innovative Mobility,” appropriately evokes Isaac Asimov.
