Asimo is a nice bit of engineering, to be certain. But to say that 
Asimo conducts an orchestra is a bit reductive of the sort of 
communication normally established between conductor and ensemble. 
Rather, the video essentially shows an ensemble that is playing to a 
metronome, albeit a metronome that simulates a beat pattern. It's not 
unlike how the robot simulates human locomotion when it would be easier 
to put the thing on wheels.
