International Robot Exhibition
A number of leading industrial robotics firms are based right here in Japan, and many Japanese firms are also very competitive in the emerging field of service robotics. For this week's "On Site" report, join our robot-crazy reporter, Brian Hughes, as he heads to the International Robot Exhibition to see the best new bots.
A Dancing Robot on Your Tabletop
She's part idol, and part machine... On our "Gadgets" segment, we check out a dancing robot toy that couldn't have come from anywhere other than Japanese pop culture! But don't be fooled by her cute looks: this little robot idol could hold a lot of potential for the future of Japanese households.

And they aren't radio controlled, either. Find out more about these autonomous aeronauts on this "Special Report" segment.
