“I wanted to create something that says, ‘This is Japan’.”
Yoshida plans to construct and sell five of the machines for the all around obeyed robot fan, however trusts the robot might one day at any point be utilized for calamity help or in the space business.
Yoshida became keen on assembling at an early age, figuring out how to weld at his granddad’s ironworks and afterward happening to establish an organization that produces myoelectric prosthetic hands. He said he is anxious to keep Japan’s upper hand in assembling alive.
“I hope to learn from previous generations and carry on the tradition,” he said.
