There is flying robots walking robots rolling robots there is a robot for almost any situation we're here at Japan Robot Week 2014 where there are a lot of robots specific to Japan Japan has a lot of natural disasters like cunami, earthquakes and floods and these robots can go to places where humans can not there is always a lot of robots designed to help the elderly. Japan has, of course, an aging population I think my favourite is the X's skeleton. I got to try that one out! Those look really cool Why don't we split up and see what we can find Readable 3: Automatic page turner Wow, very cool! The robotic solution to a very analogue problem of not being able to turn pages yourself Many of the robots here have been designed for the elderly and disabled and yes! thet can be cute! This demo robot from Kawada Industries comes from Tech already used in factories He? She? or it! The Nextage Cafe Robot can take orders via touch panel 1.) Order 2.) press Start and the robot goes to work the purpose is not to replace labour but give support during labour shortages so don't worry about your barista job, just yet this robot draws a crowd it's a glimpse into the future lights with sensors work as robot's eyes and touch robots are part of Japan's plan for the future with the declining birth rate and aging population robotic technology is seen as a positive supporting role among people it's been like this in Manga and Anime for the last 15 years Careful with that coffee! It's hot! Sometimes there are mishaps Imagine if that was a basket of eggs Mad chicken in every sandwich wrap Barista is everywhere. Feeling good again! During my walk about I stumbled upon toy-maker TAKARA TOMY's new robot Robi Jr. / Humanoid robot 15,000 yen The company provided me with my first robot in 1980's ARMTRON and OMNIBOT But today, there is ROBI What makes this little guy special? An ability to communicate "Oh sure, talk all you want!" These kinds of robots are great company for elderly who are home alone. Or those stuck at home on a Friday night after a bad break up "Hope you have a pleasant dream!" Thanks little buddy! Then, there is NEDO Funded by the government to address energy and global environmental problems as well as enhancing industrial tech These robots in action are keeping us safer in Japan So this robot is really unique it can scale walls using suction cups It goes up and analyzes whether are weak points in something like a pilon Really high places Takes that data and transmits it back to workers who can repair and fortify those weak points so things don't collapse when there is an earthquake Spiderman's got to be impressed! This is a drone that's able to fly into the air using camera and sensors it can assess a situation in a wade scale. Take that data, transmit it to Emergency, and relief workers an be able to do a rescue plan much more quickly and efficiently than ever before This machine, here has the ability to go underwater And the purpose, again, is to assess the stability of infrastructure, like dams. Finding weak spots and, again, transmitting that data back to workers, where they can repair or fortify For this was used in the Fukushima reactor to go in there and assess where some of leakages were It's got a camera and a heat sensor and the ability to go through really rugged situations This robot went into Daiichi reactor opening doors and climbing over debris giving the first reports of the situation Robots are nothing we should fear I believe robotics supports and enriches people's lives, making them better. With new technology there may be small risks but if people can allow that, we can open new frontiers together. We believe that sending out this kind of message is NEDO's mission. Now onto X's skeletons Humans fusing with machines? Air propulsion Futuristic jet packs rubberized weapons?!! Well, not exactly Joseph and I had to try out the wearable tech MUSCLE SUITS! at the INNOPHYS TOKYO University of Science booths pressurized air bursts can be controlled to contract and to expend with the metal frame making artificial muscle actions You can be just like a comic book superhero Could we lift 20 kilos? without any effort at all? This is easy!! This muscle suits are super cool but more importantly they are becaming super helpful for the elderly and disabled How long before we see people walking with them on the street? And will those people be wearing a cape and mask? In Japan anything is possible. This is PARO a therapeutic robot built to provide company to the lonely. Many senior citizens are home alone and this kind of robot is a way to curb depression I'm not lonely, nor too old, but... you know what? I want one! So this robot is called PARO "Paro the seal" "Such a cutie!" So this... has got sensors built in, all over its body so it can sense when you're stroking it when you touch its little whiskers oh, does that tickle? Did you know that Paro actually has a Guinness world record, too Really?!! What was its record holder for ? The most therapeutic robot Oh!... You know I think that is very true. Paro has proven to liven the spirits of people on long hospital stays as well as kids with autism The way it moves closes an open its eyes seems very life-like So cute! You can charge Paro with its electric pacifier stick it in its mouth and let the little one have a meal and a power-nap for a while. Like with all furry pets you hold, shedding remains a sticking point In our episode, last time, we met with Japan's most well known humanoid robot: ASIMO Free demo shows are available daily at the Honda Welcome Plaza in Tokyo You can see this tech in action all year round Let's meet the newest robot in town PEPPER Brought to market by japanese mobile phone carrier: SOFTBANK "Hello everyone. My name is Pepper." Pepper's actions are all programmed by software that is available to any developer That's right! You can soon have the ability to programme Pepper the way you want to, or buy apps pre-programmed by others. Assisting, guiding, entertaining, Pepper can do it all This artist programme for Pepper was made a week before the EXPO Hey!... You did it! That's pretty good! Not bad, eh? IBM's game show genius server WATSON is also here ---"What would you like to ask me?" Q: "What is the tallest mountain in Japan?" Watson is powering this Pepper from Texas A:"Mount Fuji" Q:"Who was the first person to perform open heart surgery in South Africa?" Christiaan Barnard I didn't know that one! The software robotics behind Pepper was developed by Frech company Aldebaran Robotics Pepper has all sorts of sensors cameras, and communication tools open for creative programming Dr. Angelica Lim explains why this is so exciting: ---"From now, artists, creatives.. ...sales people, even they are making robot applications. Now anyone can become a robot creator Where there used to be a lot of a bunch of scientist Now, anyone can do it. And that's why we see people like comedians, are making applications on a robot. So, this is a whole new paradigme and everyone can contribute to that." Here is NAO! ALDEBARAN ROBOTICS is famous for bringing this little one to life. NAO has been around for a few years and apart from other unique features, makes the perfect dance partner Especially for people who should stay off the dance floor NAO's movements are just so full of uncontained awesomeness Yes! The robot world in Japan is rocking right now! Helping people, saving the world. Get ready for the techno-waves from the Rising Sun to hit your town, soon. Robots in Japan have come a long way. Go ahead, take a bow!
