Robots that can build cars side by side with humans on an assembly line or precisely place pieces of chicken into “bento” boxed lunches, even those capable of dancing or creating nail art are just some of the highlights of the International Robot Exhibition that got under way Wednesday at Tokyo Big Sight in Koto Ward.

Marking its 40th year, the biennial trade show, also known as iREX 2013 and organized by the Japan Robot Association and The Nikkan Kogyo Shimbun, boasted a record 334 exhibitors displaying, demonstrating and explaining their products and services under the theme “Robot Technology: Making a Future with Robots.”
