Japanese Domestic Robot Performs Unwanted Extreme Home Makeover


By Ion Zwitter, Avant News Editor
Osaka, Japan, April 12, 2011

Honda Motor Company's technology division may soon face a legal challenge from an irate homeowner who claims his Honda ASIMO Series XII, a small, humanoid domestic robot, performed an "extreme home makeover" on the owner's suburban Osaka residence while the owner was away on business. According to the homeowner, advertising executive Masashi Ozaki, the robot "completely ruined" the house's painstakingly detailed chromatic and furnishings scheme, replacing it with a "techno horror".
