Japanese Robots: Honda’s High-Access Survey Robot Goes to Work in Fukushima. Finally Some Action for (parts of) ASIMO! « Akihabara News

Japanese Robots: Honda’s High-Access Survey Robot Goes to Work in Fukushima. Finally Some Action for (parts of) ASIMO! « Akihabara News | AI, NBI, Robotics & Cybernetics & Android Stuff | Scoop.it

The first signs of trouble at Fukushima were quickly followed by expectations of an action-ready ASIMO leaping to the rescue. Honda’s humanoid remains far from able, but their new High-Access Survey Robot is on the job, and of some consolation: it’s got ASIMO parts.

Japanese Robots: On DARPA, SCHAFT, and the Peace Constitution (and bad reporting) « Akihabara News | AI, NBI, Robotics & Cybernetics & Android Stuff | Scoop.it

One could reasonably assume Japan’s impressive array of supertech humanoid robots would swarm the inspired-by-Fukushima DARPA Robotics Challenge (DRC), but Tokyo University spin-off SCHAFT Robotics is it. DARPA’s militariness and Japan’s Peace Constitution complicate. Oh, and way-overblown gee-whiz coverage of the DRC isn’t helping.

Shinkansen 2027: Fiercely Minimalist Maglev Stations? « Akihabara News | AI, NBI, Robotics & Cybernetics & Android Stuff | Scoop.it
Fourteen years from now, when Japan’s magnetically levitated, approx. 300MPH/482KPH Chuō Shinkansen comes online, it’ll be among the world’s coolest people movers – maybe even top of the list. And the world’s most fantastic train should have equally fantastic train stations, yeah?

Japan’s yearly Golden Week, a 10-day stretch of spring garnished with national holidays, tends to shut down almost every industry save tourism & travel. Of course this includes J-robotics movers and shakers, so in this week’s feature we’re going straight-up international fiction and presenting 2013’s best robot-related short flicks to date.

We are indeed rapidly becoming RAM... which might not be such a bad thing. The recent application of Watson to medical diagnoses - if we all, in whatever field, had such always-learning & growing data resources. In addition to all the obvious benefits, would it not also have a certain access-to-info leveling effect?

Reno J. Tibke's insight:

While it's 500% justified to make fun of a stimuli-responsive robotic ass or other novel projects from Japan, far too often we neglect to circle back around and present the actual merits and practical applications of the so-called "Creepy Japanese Robots." Not this time!
