IREX International Robot Exhibition 2017

With more than 300 exhibitors and over 100,000 visitors, IREX claims to be the largest robot trade show in the world.

The theme of this year’s event is “a future with robots”. You have to wonder what kind of future with the event poster featuring a creepy looking monkey robot looming over a baby!

The expo will be divided into two broad categories – the industrial robot zone, and the service robot zone. Industrial robots are your typical welding and riveting arms while service robots include personal robots, space robots, agriculture robots and cleaning robots. We’re not sure which category the giant fighting robots will be in.

The door price is 1,000 yen, but if you pre-register, you can get in for free.
