Detroit Symphony Achieves Nerdvana with First Robot Conductor

Every once in a while, a video comes along that truly captures a significant moment in human/robot relations — like the robot that cooks breakfast we saw a few weeks ago. This next one sent shivers up my spine, brought a smile to my face, and, yeah, even a few tears… Not really, I’m joking about the whole crying thing. I mean, I love robots, but I’m not that sentimental.

But I challenge you not to be moved by the sight of ASIMO conducting the Detroit Symphony Orchestra in playing “The Impossible Dream”!
