Three robots (including ASIMO) show how Honda improved its humanoid robot. From left to right, the robot got more compact.

The first humanoid robot called "P2" was large and tall. His hands were claws (see enlarged photo below). Looks very threatening. Introduced in 1996.
a024-IMG_2297.jpg
The P3 robot got smaller, but still quite heavy. Introduced in 1997.
a025-IMG_2296.jpg
Then the ASIMO in 2000. The current ASIMO is only 130 cm tall and 54 kg. Much less intimidating than its predecessors. ASIMO stands for Advanced Step in Innovative MObility.

The Setagaya Boro-ichi is held on Dec. 15-16 and Jan. 15-16 annually.A large outdoor flea market of used and new clothing, antiques, household items, food, plants, and crafts.

Boro-ichi started over 400 years ago in 1578 when Odawara daimyo Lord Hojo Ujimasa opened a market place in this area. It started out selling old clothing and used goods, so it came to be called "boro-ichi" (rag market). Today, vendors also sell antiques, used books, food, household items, and all kinds of knick-knacks.
