Special Effects Secrets of Wired’s Comic-Con Robot (Video)

Here's a robot video that I found interesting:



The secret of Wired's Comic-Con robot is that it actually isn't a robot at all. It's a cleverly designed suit that employs a combination of practical effects tricks to give the illusion of a lurching heavy mech. We speak to the makers of this amazing suit to learn about its innovations and how it's unlike any special effect used in movie production.

Japan’s Robot World Unleashed: They’re Here! ★WAO! RYU ONLY in JAPAN (Video)

Here's a robot video that I found interesting:



Robots in Japan have entered the next stage! From science fiction to THEY'RE HERE right now standing next to you! Soon, everyday life will have some kind of robot in it. Let's take a look at what's here right now and what's coming in 2015 and beyond. In this episode, John Daub and Joseph Tame explore the world of Robots at the Japan Robot Week 2014 Expo at Tokyo Big Sight. John also goes to Softbank's PEPPER TECH FEST to see the latest humanoid robot built with consumer generated software. Highlights in this episode: [Japan Robot Week] ★ Robotic Exoskeletons called "Muscle Suits" ★ The Japanese government's disaster relief robots ★ Robotic animals used for hospital patients ★ Robot taking orders at a cafe, making coffee and serving it ★ Robots that keep you company when you're lonely [Pepper Tech Fest] ★ Softbank's PEPPER robot and its consumer software IN THE WILD ★ Albederan's NAO robot doing techno dancing We already interact with robots in one way or another in our daily lives, but ONLY in JAPAN are robots so accepted in everyday culture. Japan is the perfect place to be the epicenter of the robot culture boom! Will robots take over the world? (Who knows?!) But they are here now and they are only going to become more important in our lives. We explore the reasons why: Japan has a declining birth rate and growing elderly population. Japan also has a lot of natural disaster: typhoons, volcano eruptions, earthquakes, tsunami ... Robots are the key to keeping businesses running when labor shortages exist and assisting when disaster strikes as well as keeping us safe before and after. They are also important for the elderly who will need more support. Japan has stepped up its efforts. Hope you enjoy the report!
