First making an appearance back in 2011, ITK.japan’s HANDROID never ceases to amaze. With each subsequent appearance showing off a more advanced model, 2015 saw the debut of the elegant HANDROID 10. From what we hear, 2016 is no different. With smooth, fluid movements and gentle, almost delicate lines, expect to see Japanese technology at its best: a seamless melding of technology and art.
Demonstrations will be ongoing at the ITK booth, so drop on by, and if you’re lucky, you may be able to try your (ahem) hand at controlling the HANDROID.
