Nagoya was the home of Expo in 2005 and one of it’s most popular attractions were robots. So many of the robots featured at Expo and quiet a few others now make up Japan’s first Robot Museum in Nagoya. The two storey complex has a huge range of robots and many interactive displays, including manufacturing robots, toy robots and the next big thing helper robots. Already companies like Honda and Toyota are planning to produce robots which will live and assist around the home and be more than a futuristic gimic. The museum has over 1000 exhibits and a gift shop which is just as big with plenty of toys and gizmos to empty your wallets.
