We recently came across several awesome humanoid robot videos that we have brought together into this one single post.  Most of these videos are more than a year old, but still amazing if you have never seen them before.

First we have the famous asimo robot from Honda.  Most of us have heard of Asimo, but when is the last time we took the time to see how far this robot has advanced in recent years?  Below are several videos showcasing Asimo.  Here is Asimo in a commercial:
