The "Living With Robots" film was directed by Joe Berlinger (Brother's Keeper, Crude, Paradise Lost, Metallica: Some Kind of Monster), and depicts life with robots such as ASIMO from the perspective of SF screenwriters, academics, philosophers and engineers.
The Sundance Film festival will also feature the first public appearance of the 2011 Honda CR-Z sport hybrid coupe, after its world debut at the 2010 NAIAS in Detroit this week. The car, scheduled to go on sale in the US this summer, is powered by a 1.5-liter i-VTEC engine with Honda's compact and lightweight Integrated Motor Assist (IMA) hybrid-electric system.
The maximum power output for the CR-Z us rated at up to 122 horsepower at 6,000 rpm and 128 lb-ft of torque between 1,000 and 1,500 rpm. As we said in a previous report, the final fuel consumption and emission data are not available for the time being, but preliminary figures are pointing to 36 city/38 highway mpg on CVT-equipped model and 31 city/37 highway mpg for a manual transmission.
