Japanese electronics company creates miniature robot cheerleaders
Japan’s Murata Electronics unveiled its latest robot invention on September 25, a group of 10 tiny robot cheerleaders. Synchronized to their own music, the robots do little more than dance to the beat but Murata’s Senior vice President, Yuichi Kojima, explained that the main purpose was to inspire the next generation. “We made these with the intent to encourage children and young people’s dreams of improving technology in the future,” Kojima said. “We don’t plan on entering this business at all. This is just to send a message to the world and to young people to support future innovators and think about what we want to do going forward,” Kojima said.
