    ASIMO to make an appearance in the Rose Parade

    Hello.

    I have a copy of the 2008 Official Souvenir Rose Parade Program and was looking at the description of the American Honda float, titled "Passport to the Future."

    It is basically a Honda Ridgeline truck that transorms into an airborne science fiction-looking spacecraft. The description also states that a replica of Honda's ASIMO humanoid robot will be at the controls of this spacecraft, and it can be seen.

    It doesn't say if ASIMO will be done in florals, but it does say that it is a replica, so I am guessing that he will not be done in any florals at all. Regardless, I am wondering if this will be as creepy as the real ASIMO in Disneyland.

    I guess we will just have to wait and see.

    How neat! I remember seeing the ASIMO exhibit several times in Innoventions. I'm not sure if it's still there though.

    it should be done in either florals or seed or some natural thing. Every surface must be covered. I use to volunteer to decorate the floats when I was a teenager. Every surface had to be covered...even surfaces that weren't seen. Putting those little black seeds behind the bar was a PITA.
