Honda Motor Co.’s interactive robot Asimo gestures while talking with visitors at a demonstration event at the Miraikan science museum, in Tokyo, Wednesday, July 3, 2013. The walking, talking interactive robot ran into glitches in its new job as a museum guide in Tokyo. During Wednesday's demonstration, the bubble-headed Asimo machine had problems telling the difference between people raising their hands to ask questions and those aiming their smartphones to take photos at the Miraikan science museum.
