Late last month, Register Hardware reported how the car manufacturer had inked plans to showcase Asimo's musical skills at a specially arranged orchestral performance including famous cellist Yo-Yo Ma.

Well, last night the little white robot stepped onto the stage – or it was placed there by Honda technicians, we’re not sure – and skilfully led the orchestra through a rousing classical performance. Asimo - which stands for Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility - even took a small bow at the end.

Register Hardware wonders if Honda managed to get the robot to pack away all the instruments at the end of the performance too?
