A humanoid Aria Cybedroid ensures welcoming visitors on robotic space
This year, the association Caliban has established a dedicated space robotics at Japan Expo and it is an imposing humanoid, an Aria of limougeaud Cybedroid who assured the public reception on robotic space. In number of robots present, it is certainly the distributor Robotics France had the most menagerie provided with DARwIn-Mini, BIOLOID Premium and Darwin-Op Robotis even a small Hovis Lite Dongbu.
