Should be free.

This would be like charging you admission to get into a car showroom at Toyota.

It was fun and interesting. Both industrial and service robots were featured. Some companies you wouldn't associate with robotics had some really good exhibits. Daiwa House showcased three items. One was a therapy robot in the shape of a seal. The seal had a pacifier in its mouth (kawaiiiiiiii!). I think the pacifier served as the power cord. I'm not sure though. Another was a device to help partially disabled (hips down) walk. I forgot what the third was but I was blown away. Who knew that a housing company would have a robotics division?!

Japan does a LOT of robot research, development, etc. Most don't make the major news.

Last one I recall was a ball-shaped surveillance drone that cost under $1000, way below cost of similar overseas devices and out-performed them(was still a test one).

Japanese robotic research is into an altogether direction from overseas ones but much data, AI, etc is shared globally.

Seen the mass-produced controlled robot(human Pilot) that walks and shoots(old news/years ago). This is a private venture(low fundings).


There also was a working exo-skeleton that rivals HAL and stealth suit.

Now what could better funding produce putting all(asimo, landwalker, etc) those together?
