Tokyo Robot Exhibition

Posted by on November 12, 2013

This is the big biennial robot exhibition in Tokyo on the Odaibo man-made island. It took me back to childhood memories growing up in robotics laboratories with checkers and chess playing arms. Most of the robots were dominated by the auto industry, which really, is kind of sad when I think about it. That said, there was a decent number of robots on show for helping elderly people do things and a few different sets of exo-skeleton type devices to allow people to pick up heavy objects without using their muscles.
