Orix Rentec Corporation and Orix Auto Corporation are working on a portable robot showroom that will first open in Fukuoka during early November before heading out on a nationwide tour. The Portable Robot Lab vehicle will be equipped with the next generation of robot technology. Orix Rentec opened a showroom exhibiting robots at the Tokyo Technology Center in January of this year which primarily targeted corporate businesses in the Kanto area. This new touring version gives science enthusiasts who cannot readily go to Tokyo the chance to find out about all the latest technological innovations. The tour will initially visit areas of Kyushu and Chugoku that are known for manufacturing or electricity-related industries. Source: Jiji Press, 10/5/2017
