    Using most of his name, but somehow failing to mention Isaac as a source,
    is, well, looks like something damn close to something somebody should
    sue about...


    ..... as the Good Doctor is well-known to be the Father of Robotics, at
    least in spirit.

    I've been over the site pretty fully, and have not found a single mention
    of Asimov at all.

    And yet, they have the audacity to tell us that ASIMO is, uh, some sort
    of abbreviation of Advance Step in Innovative MObility....


    Is there a lawyer in the house?
