ASIMO greeted President Obama in English - "Mr. President, I am ASIMO, a humanoid robot. It is a pleasure to meet you." ASIMO then demonstrated some signature moves including running, kicking a ball and jumping.

Honda is conducting robotics research for the purpose of creating robots that help people while coexisting with people in society. ASIMO also expressed a future goal to President Obama - "I keep training every day so that someday in the future I can help people in their homes."

Since the introduction in 2000, ASIMO has met a number of VIPs from other countries. However, this was the first time for ASIMO to meet a U.S. President.
