  • Sushi-Making Robot Chef Unveiled in Tokyo

    Visitors to the Tokyo Robot Center Showroom on Tokyo's Odaiba Island watched as a DuAro dual-armed SCARA robot made traditional Japanese nigiri sushi as part of a project launched by Kawasaki Heavy Industries. The robot gracefully placed the fish toppings on little balls of rice while explaining every movement with audio and text appearing on the robot's 'face', which consisted of a mouth, nose, and big black eyes animated on a screen in between the two arms. The chef-bot was featured at the newly opened 'Kawasaki Robostage', a location open to the public designed to demonstrate the future of coexistence between humans and robots. It's part of a larger initiative from the Japanese government called 'Robot Strategy', which aims to introduce more widespread robot usage at every level of society. Robot Strategy has a dual purpose - to help manage the effects of a rapidly aging society by filling in for jobs usually handled by young people and to make Japan a global center for robotics innovation in order to serve the demands of the global economy of the future.
