I don't contribute that often, finding it far more interesting to just
"listen", but as its a friday afternoon!....

I would think that by making asimo walk about like that it should do
something rather interesting to his centre of gravity, perhaps making it
slightly lower? The greater level of flexion in running would shift the
centre of gravity still further, which would make sense as running would
probably be even less stable.

As to why, well, however human honda want to make asimo, his internal bits
and pieces are going to inevitably have a very different weight
distribution to that of a biological human. It may be that he is slightly
top heavy, hence the need to shift the centre of gravity a bit when
