Mark Lee with the new robotics start-up company, Metacraft Technology, in Singapore recently visited with us at the ROBO-ONE Gran Prix event at Tokyo Dome City. His company is so new that they don't even have a website up yet. Their plan is to promote robotics, especially humanoid robotics, in Singapore and the South East Asia region.
For the past several years Singapore robot enthusiasts have captured the top positions in micromouse competitions, even here in Japan. So Metacraft believes that there will be a strong interest in humanoid robotics as well. While his group was here in Japan they also visited the 27th Annual All Japan Micromouse Competition and were kind enough to share some detailed close-up micromouse photos with us. The competition, by the way, took place in Nagai, the same rural location where we attended the ROBO-ONE 10 competition in September.
