Is Lexus about to unveil its own version of the Honda ASIMO robot?

Probably not, but its new teaser video certainly suggests something along those lines.

Lexus has released a new video featuring a puppet being made to walk.

Along with the video, the automaker also released the statement, “Coming May 2013, Lexus is bringing motion to life.”

There’s not much else to go on, but we do know that Lexus, together with its parent company Toyota, has recently jumped on the autonomous car bandwagon, including having unveiled a prototype vehicle with self-driving capabilities at the 2013 Consumer Electronics Show back in January. 

Could we see an announcement of further development of Lexus’ autonomous car technology next month?

Only time will tell.
