Congratulations to Honda's Asimo, world champion of Crave's 2007 nonviolent robot tournament. In the final battle of the tournament, the smooth and sophisticated bipedal robot ousted Star Trek: The Next Generation's Data by a 78-22 percentage score.
Oh, and get your Asimo souvenir pennant here.
The total vote count was even more impressive. Asimo boasted 2,873 votes to Data's 861. Either total would have won any other game in the tournament, a testament to the feverish excitement created by the tourney across the world.
The odds-on favorite to win the competition, Asimo beat out 32 other robots (including the Crow T. Robot vs. Tom Servo play-in game) to take home top honors. Honda's robot was seeded No. 1 in the ultracompetitive Prototype Division.
