Finally, Japan invents a *useful* robot, Part 2

Long-time contributor to the 3Yen, MARKed TRAIL, just sent us this hot robotics tip…

Here’s a continuation of your story, said-openFinally, Japan invents a *useful* robot (3Yen / 2013-02-15).said-closed

What MARKed TRAIL is refering to is the cruel joke that ALL of Japan’s robots failed to help in the nuke plant meltdown (3Yen / 2011-04-05). That is, Japan has spent trillions of both corporate and public money on robot development, but did no have any robots capable of helping in the aftermath of the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster*.

    Gee, guys! I hate to break it to you but that “Powered Jacket MK3″ is just a wearable robot marionette that started as a manga to entertain children. It’s a puppet—just a fake mecha-suit, robot, whatever.

    The original Powered Jacket comic in engrish:

    While not as elaborate or lifelike as R0sie, the housekeeper in The Jets0ns, today’s r0bots are able to do everything from vacuuming fl00rs and mixing drinks to helping patients rec0ver from str0kes.
