(USA TODAY) -- President Obama was impressed by a robot demonstration Thursday in Japan... impressed and maybe a little intimidated.
"We saw some truly amazing robots, although I have to say the robots were a little scary," Obama said after a program that included robots playing soccer.
"They were too lifelike," Obama said. "They were amazing."
The president's tour of the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation included a pre-taped message from the International Space Station.
In remarks, Obama said the exhibits "show the incredible breakthroughs in technology and science that are happening every single day."
Citing the renewal of an agreement on technology cooperation, Obama said that "Japan and the United States have historically led the way in innovations that have changed our lives and improved our lives."
