kawanda industries recently showcased their nekusuteji nextage robots designed for working situations like manufacturing. the robots are close to human scale, very lightweight and have very precise arms that can be programmed to perform a number of tasks. the head is equipped with stereo cameras for image recognition. the robots are designed for ease of use and have a GUI-based interface that allows them to be easily programmed. each robot is custom built to suit the user’s specifications. the nekusuteji nextage robot is being exhibited at the 2009 international robot exhibition where it also was given the honour of cutting the ribbon at the opening ceremonies. if kawanda industries can perfect the design in the next few years, your next co-worker may be a robot.
