The 2005 World Expo, held in Japan, is currently under way, and judging by some of the reports, it looks like robots are going to be everywhere ;) Japan is known to work hard on these robots (Just look at the Sony and Toyota projects), and the latest World Expo is showcasing many of them, with the goal of being as human as possible.
