Expo 2012 Robotics Pavilion

If you love robots, then you might want to considers booking a trip to Expo 2012’s robotics pavilion in Yeosu, South Korea. One of the exhibits will be dedicated specifically to aquatic robots.

The theme for this year’s Expo is The Living Ocean and Coast.” Special thanks to Plastic Pals for calling this to our attention. Many of the robots are from Virginia Tech’s Robotics and Mechanisms Laboratory (RoMeLa).

The star attraction is a 6.5 meter (21 feet) tall robot statue dubbed “Navi.”

Robot entryway

The entrance is also impressive, being lined with various robot parts, though if you’re a robot it might seem cruel.

The exhibit also features a storage facility for robots.

Sports fans will also love to see some humanoid DARwin robots play soccer, er, football with each other.

Robot lab

The pavilion will also show a mock-up of RoMeLa’s lab, showing how robots are designed and built.

Navi robot

Finally, the main attraction will be The Deep Sea, an exhibit showing how robots are being used underwater, including the previously mentioned Navi robot.

If you’re planning on making a trip out to Korea soon to see all this, the exhibition will run from May 12 to August 12, 2012. You can check out their official English site for more information.

We’ve got plenty of robot-related posts, including a robotic octopus and robots patrolling South Korean prisons.
