When we arrived in Fukuoka one of the places on my list is the Robosquare which is near the Fukuoka Tower. It’s a somewhat robot museum that houses 250 robots with 100 different types. Ever since I was a kid I have always loved robots! I remember having a dismantled robot that was handed down by a cousin. We couldn’t afford having one so I was next in line if ever a robot gets broken. When I went to Robosquare, I was reminded of that childhood feeling; playing with robots and actually wanting to try building or dismantling one through their summer classes but we had no time so I was just up for a viewing spree.
Many robots in Robosquare are the types that you can interact with like the famous AIBO (Artificial Intelligence Robot). You also have PARO, a robotic seal that played a big role in relieving mental anguish of people who were affected by the great East Japan Earthquake. You can also talk to Pepper, a humanoid robot you can play guessing game with through the monitor on its chest. Pepper can actually dance with you and when you do, it looks right into your eyes. 🙂
There are still other robots that you can play with but the best part is the robot show which is scheduled on the following:
- 11:00 AM
- 2:00 PM
- 4:00 PM
- 11:00 AM
- 1:00 PM
- 3:00 PM
- 4:30 PM
Speaking of performance, these really cool pirate robots entertained us while we where there. We were lucky to catch the 4:30 schedule that day. Watch the video below and prepare for their push-up performance. Haha Seriously!
