Adorable!
Good luck, Kirobo!

"From time to time there appear on the face of the earth men of rare and consummate excellence, who dazzle us by their virtue, and whose outstanding qualities shed a stupendous light. Like those extraordinary stars of whose origins we are ignorant, and of whose fate, once they have vanished, we know even less, such men have neither forebears nor descendants: they are the whole of their race."  -- Jean de la Bruyere 1645-1696.

The Japanese are quite an imaginative people.

This guy looks like he could belong to an Anime.

Anyways, they have a lot of research in robotics.

It was only a matter of time until they developed a robot astronaut.

More power to them. :D
