Venture Business Award was awarded to the Pork Ham Automatic Slitting and Deboner Robot HAMDAS-R developed by Mayekawa. It is a mechanized slitting process assumed to be the most difficult for automation by optimally controlling knives incorporated in vertical multi-joint robots. This system has achieved high or higher yield ration than a skilled-workers do. The system doesn’t cut off the meat but debone with dismantling so the meat is free from the damages caused by knife. Since human hands don’t touch the meat, the problem of sanitation and security is highly improved. HAMDAS-R will contribute yield ration improvement and man-power saving.
Virtual robot Hatsune Miku (初音ミク?) is a singing synthesizer application and its female character, developed by Crypton Future Media. It uses Yamaha Corporation’s Vocaloid synthesizing technology. Customers can purchase the digital avatal and then program to perform any song on a computer. But that´s not all, now Hatsune Miku, the Singer in the Box, has jumped on stadium stages in 3D Hologram as part of a concert tour, where capacity crowds waved their glow sticks and sang along.
Hatsune Miku downloaded to a female HRP-4C android body. Who will be first to launch a new generation robotic Dance Girls? Japanese Robot Yuenchi or French Aldebaran? One Hatsune Miku in every home!
