Obama Admits He's Scared of Japanese Robots

After touring the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Japan, President Obama admitted the robots he saw were "too lifelike" and "a little scary."

"We saw some truly amazing robots, although I have to say, the robots were a little scary," Obama said at the beginning of his post-tour remarks.

In response to the joke about his fear of the android, the crowd fell silent, missing the humor entirely.

The robot, named ASIMO, spoke to Obama and even kicked a soccer ball at him. AP reported Obama was "delighted" to show his "presidential geek side."
