Japan: the Dance of the 100 robots!

Not RC at all, but our other favourite subject here at RC Racing Tv – Crazy Japanese stuff ! – Whilst it’s no Bear driving a Tractor (Go Kumamon!!) it’s still pretty cool!  A hundred humanoid robots dancing in unison!

The dancer is  Robi, the small and cute android built by kit as a “part work” and sold in Europe by De Agostini Publishing.

Robicle: the tricycle for the Robot Robi!

robicle-robot

Nope. me neither! But it is cute and strange in that fantastically Japanese way – Robi: the robot designed by Tomotaka Takahashi (ROBO-GARAGE), has his (?) first accessory   a tricycle with remote control equipped with LED lights that allows you to Robi to move with greater speed around the room.

Interestingly he, and the tricycle are part of a DeAgostini part work, so over the course of 30 issues you build it all yourself! Available in Japan and Southern Europe it may well be coming to a newsagent near you soon!
