Foro08 Talk Salon No.13 Tatsuya Matsui x Rikuo Nishimori "Robot Design and Industry Creation"
This event has ended.
In Osamu Tezuka's Astro Boy, Astro Boy was born in 2003. Apparently, we are living in the time five years after his birth. When we think about it, we can name various types of robots used everyday, like those used for reception purposes at hospitals, cleaning, construction, rescue missions, and ever-newer models unveiled at robotics competitions. Without being conscious of it, we are living in the age of Astro Boy that Tezuka imagined. Robotic invention has now become a new industry of 21st century Japan, which invests in its research, technical advancement, as well as programing and design.
At this event, Tatsuya Matsui, a leading figure in the robotics industry, will talk about robotic design and his work at Flower Robotics Company.
On a side note, the basement level of this venue, Foro08, formerly used as their gallery space, will come alive as a new Italian restaurant, Ristorante alla Baba, starting from November. Chef Mitsuaki Baba of Vino della Pace in Nishi-azabu will prepare Italian food for this talk event taking place at the restaurant. Please note that the entrance fee for this edition of Foro08 Talk Salon is different from usual, as it includes food and wine prepared by this restaurant. Foro08 will hereafter continue hosting events at this venue.
