Tokyo – Japanese Robot Invasion!!


During the time John and I spent in Tokyo, I saw robots. Actually, that’s quite the understatement… I saw TONS of robots! From robots on the street to entire restaurants and stores dedicated to selling the latest in robotics!

But that’s not all, as I finally had the opportunity to meet the one and only Geminoid-F! She was on display at the Takashimaya department store in Tokyo for a Valentine’s display.

Just as amazing was all the tech keeping Geminoid-F running. She sees guests using a webcam and a Kinect sensor for depth, allowing her to react perfectly. All of that is powered by a simple power cable!

It’s amazing where robotics has come and it never ceases to impress me! If you have any cool robots, be sure to share them!! Find me on Twitter or on Google+!
