The Robots of Japan’s Ceatec 2010

Ceatec, Japan’s largest annual electronics show, has just wrapped up for another year.  One of the most popular exhibitors at Ceatec in recent years is Murata, a sensor company that creates small robots to showcase its latest ultrasonic sensor technology.  This year they brought Murata Girl, a unicycling robot that maneuvers the curves of an s-shaped course, and Murata Boy, who rides a bicycle up an inclined track. 

See Murata’s robots in action in this YouTube video:

It goes without saying that the people of Japan love robots.  At a recent Google Developer Day event, the Android Droid Robot was a popular attraction.
