It's an interview with one of the developers from Honda talking about not only the potential Asimo has, but also fundamental issues about the design: quite how human they want it to be, why it's child-sized, and why it talks the way it does. It's also cut with some video of Asimo in action... and I must say, it's not just the interviewer who's creeped out by the little chap."

The problem lies in — you guessed it — the supply of blue laser diodes needed for the ill-fated Blu-Ray player. US and Japanese launches are still scheduled to go ahead for November 11 and 17 respectively, though."
