I was moved when I saw that on a science show. For the first time, real humanoid motion, not a guy in a suit!

Where does the name come from? I think they said it means something in Japanese, but I can't help but notice the similarity to "Asimov".

I saw that thing on Beyond 2000 in 89 or 90 and was blown away at how fast the guys could run in it.

Me too, and I've been obsessed with it ever since. Took forever to find on the internet. I'd love to have one.
