Honda expands their Asimo line of robots with a stunning 44 ft. unit developed specifically for Carmax. From the press release:
Based on Honda's Asimo robot, Carmax and Honda have developed a new version specifically for use in Carmax showrooms. The new version is much larger however - standing at roughly 44 feet tall. Because of its size, it is far less mobile but much more imposing. According to Thomas Folliard, V.P. of store operations; "We're already seeing an effect from the new Asimo sales force -- many potential shoppers are almost, to borrow a phrase, shocked and awed into buying a car.I hate to be the voice of doom and gloom, but this sounds kinda dangerous.
