Dokumentären är ganska gammal, men ändå intressant. Av innehållet att döma verkar den vara gjord år 2000, då man bland annat får se Hondas P3-robot i del 4. P3 (Prototype 3) blev färdigutvecklad 1997 och var föregångaren till Asimo, som kom år 2000. Den första modelen av Asimo visas även i programmet, men den benämns inte som "Asimo". Även ett inslag från Robocup 2000, som anordnades 27 augusti - 3 september 2000, visas i del 8.
