Honda Robot Conducts Detroit Symphony
ASIMO Conducted 'Impossible Dream'

POSTED: 3:34 pm EDT May 14, 2008

DETROIT -- A very different kind of conductor has taken the podium at the Detroit Symphony: A shiny, white robot.

The 4-foot-3-inch ASIMO got a warm welcome Tuesday night as it conducted a concert featuring cellist Yo-Yo Ma.

ASIMO conducted Mitch Leigh's "Impossible Dream," a song from the musical "Man of La Mancha."

The robot took a final bow to enthusiastic shouts from the audience.
