MechaDroid Type C3
The latest robotics company to take science fiction into reality is Japan’s Business Design with its new MechaDroid Type C3 robot receptionist. Currently being shown off at Tokyo’s CEATEC conference, the robot uses face recognition technology to interpret the needs of visitors and assist them in acquiring information or directions displayed on an embedded touchscreen panel.
