Korean Museum Guide Robot A Hit With Kids

Docent, a museum guide robot from South Korea, is giving tours at the Daejon Museum of Art over the winter break until January 14th, 2011.  The 120cm (4′) tall robot stands roughly eye-level with children, and provides information as it moves from one exhibit to another before ending its tour at a large plasma display panel.  It has already made the rounds at a number of museums, introducing children to works of art as well as Korea’s robotics technology.
