ASIMO (アシモ ashimo?) is a humanoid robot created by Honda. Introduced in 2000, ASIMO, which is an acronym for “Advanced Step in Innovative MObility”, was created to be a helper to people.[1] With aspirations of helping people who lack full mobility, ASIMO is used to encourage young people to study science and mathematics.[2] At 4 feet, 3 inches tall and 119 lbs., ASIMO was designed to operate in real-world environments, with the ability to walk or run on two feet at speeds up to 3.7 mph (6km/h).[3] In the USA, ASIMO is part of the Innoventions attraction at Disneyland and has been featured in a 15-minute show called “Say ‘Hello’ to Honda’s ASIMO” since June 2005.[4] The robot has made public appearances around the world, including the Consumer Electronics Show (CES), the Miraikan Museum in Japan and the Ars Electronica festival in Austria.[5]

‘Occupy Flash’ Wants Adobe’s Plugin to Die Now, Not Later

It wasn’t enough for Adobe to put the kibosh on the mobile version of its Flash media plugin—a group riffing on the Occupy Wall Street movement wants to see Flash buried six feet under.

Flash Player is dead,” argue the site’s operators in a manifesto. “Its time has passed. It’s buggy. It crashes a lot. It requires constant security updates. It doesn’t work on most mobile devices. It’s a fossil, left over from the era of closed standards and unilateral corporate control of web technology.”

Occupy Flash describes itself as “the movement to rid the world of the Flash Player plugin.” Its site certainly looks the part, an art deco-style fist thrust high in the air above a banner framing Adobe’s Flash logo beneath a “no” symbol. The site’s goal: “To get the world to uninstall the Flash Player plugin from their desktop browsers.”
