Go Nagai has been invited to give the keynote address at the International Robot Convergence Conference 2010 (IRCC) in South Korea on February 23rd. He is an interesting choice given South Korea’s most popular and patriotic giant robot Taekwon V is widely considered a copy of his popular ’70s giant robot story Mazinger Z. Perhaps this is a way of making up for all those bootlegged toys? The theme of his talk will be about the peaceful co-existence of humans and robots to stimulate the imaginations of those who attend.
