- PRESS RELEASE
South Korean robotics company RoboBuilder will be putting on a show during this year's ITU World with a selection of robots and dance routines. The humanoid-shaped robots, which are from 19 cm to 1 meter in height, can be programmed by visitors to dance in a variety of styles as well as perform a variety of other actions.
"Our aim is to bring robotics to the mainstream, to ensure that educational establishments can afford the cost of a robot which will in turn allow students to learn effectively about robotics in the best way possible," said Sunny Kim, sales manager, RoboBuilder. "The more that students are able to play with and experience how robots are built, designed, and programmed, the more they will understand and want to be part of this new industry. We want to play a role to engaging with young minds and encouraging them to think about robotics as more than just a hobby."
During ITU World, which will be held at the Dubai World Trade Center from the 14th to the 18th of October, RoboBuilder executives will be meeting with potential distributors and retailers for the company's product line, including the educational robot kit.
"Our RoboBuilders are highly advanced do-it-yourself robotic kits but anybody can enjoy designing and building robots simply by plugging the modules together and then downloading different motion files from our website. The robots have sixteen degrees of freedom, they can detect sounds and distances, and can be put together within an hour. They're going to transform how robotics is taught in the Middle East," added Kim.
