GINZA: The number of people on the planet is exploding, but not everywhere.
BBC News said that Japan has the oldest population in the world.
That means not enough young workers to power the economy.
According to ORY Laboratory CEO, Kentaro Yoshifuji, humans should have two bodies instead of one because when one body is not working, we can still use the other one.
“Why should humans only have one body? We have two eyes and two hands. If one isn’t working, then we can still use the other one. But we only have one body.”
He also stressed that human should be number one and robots as the assistant.
He said this during an interview with the BBC’s reporter when being asked why is the avatar so important.
ORY Laboratory is a designer and manufacturer of educational and entertainment robots for consumers who created Orihime to help human by being controlled remotely through smartphones or tablets.
In a place, like Japan, where workers are desperately needed, the government is hoping that robots could be the answer. – BBC News
