President Obama Played Soccer with a Robot in Japan

President Obama is in Japan on a state visit right now, but our sports-fanatic of a President got a bit of game -- the POTUS caught a soccer ball, kicked to him by a humanoid robot named Asimo at Tokyo's Miraikan Science Museum.

The robot, developed by Honda, also spoke to Obama in English. The President was all smiles, but after the tour, he told students the robot was a little scary. "They were too lifelike," he said.

One thing is for certain: This photo will irrationally anger somebody.
