It’s tech news…  I’m not particularly excited about it, but it’s tech..

Honda’s newest version of its advanced humanoid robot, ASIMO, will make its North American debut in New York on Tuesday, April 15 with an appearance on the "LIVE with Kelly and Michael" talk show.

On Wednesday, April 16, there will be an appointment-only demonstration for select media at the Westin Grand Central hotel, Manhattan.
