The 2015 edition of CEATEC, the grand salon of consumer electronics Tokyo was the opportunity to see again the robot table tennis player Omron. A now classic delta robot in the industry but a small effect in a salon. Especially since the manufacturer has completed the imposing of a table device / screen that shows the trajectory of the ball calculated by the robot before his shot. Spectacular, even if, ultimately, the robot does not look to be a very good player!
Robotics and drones do the buzz on CEATEC 2015
The CEATEC is traditionally an opportunity for Japan to unveil innovations like we do not see anywhere else. The robot table tennis player had won an innovation award at the 2014 edition He returns this year in an improved and more spectacular release. Another fun innovation, the robot that folds the T-Shirt. Obviously perform this basic task requires a lot of effort and time for the machine.It takes several minutes of image analysis and intensive work Laundroid to fold an unhappy T-shirt without ironing. We can not imagine that the device be put in place to iron a shirt!
Even less useful but more poetic, the Origami drone. A folded paper crane capable of flying and controlled via a smartphone. We already knew the Bionic Bird but this crane just as unnecessary and therefore essential, not a lack of any Japanese charm.
