If you've ever wanted to own Honda's ASIMO robot then now is your chance. Sort of. Actually, there are around 100 of them in existence but they will cost you $1million. If you'd rather get one for free then you can download a virtual ASIMO widget for your desktop.

The little guy will work on a Mac or PC so long as you've installed Adobe AIR and run either XP, Vista, 7 or OS X 10.4 and above.

ASIMO will jog about on your screen, fetch you Honda news and even the odd memo as well. What it probably won't do is practice climbing stairs
