A new Japanese robotics magazine, Robot Life
, has polled 500 Japanese females to ask them who was their favorite commercial robot. The grand winner was the PaPeRo robot
, pictured at left, built by NEC. Also making the top 10 list (though, at a dismal 10th), is our friend Robonova
and Manoi were also in the list. Judging from the list, it appears that young Japanese females prefer style over substance - any surprises here?
Here's the complete list:
- Robofie VS-1
- Manoi PF01
- Vision Nexta
- RB 1000
- Robonova I
I have to say, though, that I'm surprised Plen
didn't make it on the list.
