Robot Fair 2007/11/29 09:37
Tokyo 23-ku
The International Robot Fair started yesterday (Wednesday) at the Tokyo Big Site in Odaiba. I have plans to go on Saturday, but I need more information such as the price of the admission ticket. I also wanted to know if I will be able to see Sony's Qrio and Honda's Asimo robots at the event.

Admission ticket costs 1000 yen for adults and 500 yen for students.
In reading the weppage, neither Honda nor Sony participates this event. You can see ASIMO at the National Museum of Nature and Science.

The only reason why I would have gone was to see Sony and Honda's robots, if I did go what would I be able to see? Thanks for the information for the exhibiton in Ueno Park, but I have already seen Asimo in person when I went to the Tokyo Motor Show. Where can I see Sony's Qrio robot? Thanks!

I just saw a photo taken at the event with Asimo. Do you have the official website for the event?

That article was written in 2006 and I saw Sony's Qrio robot featured on a children's show on TV two months ago.

Sony pulling out means that they will no longer produce new robots or continue developing old ones. They will probably continue to display the ones they currently have built though. They won't just disappear.

Sony plans to 'restructure' their robotics development.

Which Show is better? 2007/12/14 23:22
I arrive on the 31st, so I can only go the Robot show in the National Sceience Museum. But for comparison, anyone saw this one and also the Robot Fair that was finished at the Tokyo Big Site in Odaiba?
