« on: November 23, 2007, 03:09:33 PM »
Can someone who speaks Japanese tell me why the ex-prime minister is playing with a robot seal during a conference?

Nothing special. While Koizumi was playing with the robot, the guy in the backgroung was talking about robotics development and the JABEE and some cliche stuff about robotics. About Koizumi himself, that time the seal robot hasnt been yet released to the public yet so they let Koizumi play with it, and he makes a small joke about it. Then in the end Koizumi asks to the people to continue reseaching robotics for helping every day life, handicap people, medical research, expand economy and industry and so on (nothing about military purposes).
