RoboPorter at Kita Kyushu Airport
By: Ben Preiss - Published: Feb 18, 2008 Updated: Jun 21 2011 • References: inventorspot
The Japanese are in with another robot first, the RoboPorter is a thus far free service that is being tested at Kita Kyushu airport in southwest Japan. He's not very cute and doesn't seem to be much for bending over. It looks pretty much like the bending and lifting is up to you and RoboPorter is just the cross terminal schlepper.
