As of March 2014, according to Popular Mechanics, the Honda Asimo costs just under $1 million to purchase. Rental fees for the humanoid robot are around $100,000.
The Honda Asimo measures 4 feet 3 inches tall, and is an incredibly advanced piece of technology. It runs at speeds up to 4 mph, and it has the ability to recognize faces and voices. Asimo can climb stairs and grasp objects. It also comes equipped with multiple sensors that keep it from running into obstacles in its environment. Although the Asimo comes with a wide array of useful features and skills, it is unlikely to ever have widespread appeal due to its high price.
