ASIMO an acronym for Advanced Step in Innovative MObility is one of the world’s most advanced humanoid robots developed by Honda. Building ASIMO was incredible challenge for Honda engineers. In addition to powerful computers and sophisticated software, ASIMO represents years of research in many scientific field. But now ASIMO devlopers are providing papercarf model, which is easy in assembly, to learn the designing process of ASIMO.
Are you interested to make your own ASIMO robot? Now it is possible in papercraft model. Honda has released on its ASIMO site the ASIMO Papercraft model, a fun arts and crafts activity, with complete instructions and downloadable pdf templates. Print out and build your own ASIMO papercraft model. Enjoy this fun arts and crafts activity with your children.
Required Tools and materials:
- Blade / scissors
- Cutting mat
- Glue (wood glue or handicraft glue)
- Toothpick (to spread glue evenly)
- A sharp object, such as an old, empty ballpoint pen (to score – or make an indentation – in the paper)

And in the future, It may serve as another set of eyes, ears, hands and legs for all kinds of people in need. Someday it might help with important tasks like assisting the elderly or a person confined to a bed or a wheelchair. ASIMO might also perform certain tasks that are dangerous to humans, such as fighting fires or cleaning up toxic spills.
