Challenge One!

Welcome aboard! I look forward to joining with you on our learning adventure in Japan! I will be posting 5 thinking challenges over the first two weeks of Term 4.

Please remember: Be cybersafe – post using your first name and the first initial of your school, only. Solve all 5 challenges and a surprise awaits!

Let’s get started.

I was very lucky to meet ASIMO when I visited the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation. Check out the video below to see ASIMO in action!

  1. Who is ASIMO and why is he so famous?

  2. How is ASIMO different to other robots?

  3. What does it mean to be human and can a machine have human characteristics? Can you think of any problems with this form of advancing technology?

You can make your own paper-craft model of ASIMO here.
