Two days ago, on November 28th I went to the IREX (International Robot Exhibition) 2009 at Tokyo International Exhibition Center, Tokyo Big Sight, Ariake, Japan. It was an event where many companies and universities exhibit their robots. There were many kinds of robots, like industry robots, service robots, or toy robots. Some of the robots were only for exhibition, but some of them were sold.
I went to the robot exhibition with my friends. It was the last day of the exhibition and we went there about 2 hours before the closing time, so we didn’t get to see all the robots. What we wanted to see the most were the robot “Asimo” and Gundam. Unfortunately, we couldn’t find where they were.
I won’t say too much here and I will just show some photos and vidoes of the IREX 2009.
These are videos of some interesting robots.
After the IREX was closed, we went to several places at お台場 like the Aqua City where you can see Liberty Statue, and see the Rainbow Bridge although it was actually still quite far. We also rode Gondola where we got discount price for group tickets.
