Honda to Premiere "Living with Robots" Documentary

The latest film in Honda’s Dream the Impossible Documentary Series, ‘Living with Robots’, will be premiered at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival, the Japanese carmaker announced yesterday. The festival, due to kick-off on January 22, will also witness a live 10-minute demonstration of the ASIMO humanoid robot from Honda, which is designed to someday assist people in their homes.

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 short documentary film and the ASIMO (Advanced Step in Innovative Mobility) humanoid robot will be on display for three days only, from January 22 to 24.

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.
