I've said before that Computex is ASUS' show -- and what better demonstration than having the recently-elected President of Taiwan "talk" to your newly announced home robot? Crowd noise necessitated several repeated commands to ASUS' Zenbo play some music, but if it was apparently a live demonstration (ASUS' PR affirmed to our Engadget Chinese colleagues that it was), then it's pretty impressive. (I can barely upload to Instagram in the thick of this show.) Unfortunately, the Zenbo's SOS feature failed in the midst of the trade show chaos. Check out the successful part of the interaction between world leader and... $600 house robot, right after the break.Engadget Chinese
