RoboPorter Carries Your Luggage for You

Monday, February 18, 2008

If you happen to stop over at Kita Kyushu airport in the southwest of Japan this month, don’t be surprised if the porter offering to carry your bags is a four-foot green chap with an oddly metallic voice. RoboPorter is currently being tested at the regional airport by Yaskawa Electric for a few hours each afternoon. As you’ll see from the photo gallery over at Japanese site Robot Watch, the machine looks something like a tiny flatbed truck and includes a screen that serves as its human face.
