IREX 2022 closed its doors a few days ago, but the Japanese robotics show is definitely worth a second look after our first article on robots from Honda and Kawasaki. Sony Interactive Entertainment treats us with a new robot prototype Asimo capable of reproducing to perfection and with great speed the gestures made by an individual placed in front of him!
