Honda's showcase robot ASIMO will conduct the Detroit Symphony Orchestra with Yo Yo Ma, performing the piece "Impossible Dream" on May 13. 

In other robot news, Gakutensoku, Asia's oldest modern robot, was just restored in Osaka. It was built in 1928 for the Showa Emperor. The video demonstrates all its capabilities, from looking around to...looking around with a smile on his face. Really creepy, especially around the 1 minute marker in the video.
