NEXTAGE robot designed to upstage human factory workers

The latest in human unemployment technology will be revealed this week at the International Robot Exhibition in Tokyo, Japan. The new robot from Kawada is called NEXTAGE and has the ability to seamlessly work side by side with humans.

The humanoid robot is equipped with special sensors that allow it to remain mindful of humans in its vicinity, particularly in a production line environment. You can see video of the NEXTAGE robot in action here.
