Booming Robot Stores of Osaka

Posted 8 May 2006 at 14:54 UTC by Rog-a-matic Share This

Specialty robot shops in Osaka are growing. Strong customer demand has forced the Robo Cafe in Nishi Ward to remove dining tables and increase the number of robots on display from 450 to 650. They've also increased robot-assembling events to twice a week from once or twice a month. The Robot Factory in Naniwa Ward, which opened in December 2004, recently moved to better location to lure more customers. The showroom displays 10 types of robots, including house-sitting robots. Apparently the interest is not linited to the younger generation either.

I had the opportunity to visit the Robo-Cafe last week while I was in Osaka attending Robo-Fight 3. The store is extremely well laid out and stocked, but the big attraction is the staff. Everyone I talked to at the store had a passion for robotics and was very knowledgeable. The coffee was good, no question, but you don't go there for the coffee. It's a great place to learn about robots of all types, and to get your questions answered by people that are directly involved. There's a review along with photos I took last week posted on Robots Dreams.
