The first robotic astronaut to launch into space

Kirobo, Fuminori Kataoka

We are glad to inform you: an experiment in which a space to help people leave the robot is ready for launch. It will take place August 4, 2013 from the Space Center Tanegashimy. Kirobo – sociable humanoid in the picture – left. Communicates with Fuminori Takaoka, general manager of Toyota Motor. And you know what they say project managers Kirobo?

“Russia first came out in space, the United States first set foot on the moon, and we want it to Japan first sent a robot astronaut who will be able to communicate with people,” – the words Yorichiki Nishidzimy.

At the demonstration Kataoka, project manager of Toyota, asked Kirobo, if he has a dream.

“I want to build a future in which humans and robots will live together and be friends,” – said the robot.

Tomotaka Takahashi, CEO Robo Garage and an associate professor at Tokyo University expressed the hope that robots like HAL 9000 Kirobo ever become indispensable helpers astronauts working in space.

“When people think about robots in space, they are represented, as a rule, the robots who are doing something physical,” – says Takahashi. We will not argue – is now being actively developed robotic trucks . – “But I think something can come out of humanoid robots aimed at communication.”

Since Kirobo, which means “hope” in Japanese, does not require the performance of physical activities, it is smaller than most of the robots, flying into space. Kirobo only 34 centimeters high and weighs about 1 kg.

But the Russian robots go to the moon in 2015 alone.
