Photo Journal: Robotic relaxation


Assistant Professor Takahiro Nozaki of Keio University, center, has his shoulders massaged by a robot as part of a demonstration at a Keio University campus in Yokohama's Kohoku Ward, on Sept. 28, 2017. The robot, which was developed by a research group including members of the university, is capable of massaging humans in a relaxing manner that is not too forceful. It also has the ability to grasp delicate objects without crushing them, as a result of careful modifications carried out by the research team. (Mainichi)
