Robotic Workers Being Laid Off In Japan

They may be the most efficient workers in the world. But in the global downturn, they are having a tough time finding jobs.

Japan™ legions of robots, the world™ largest fleet of mechanised workers, are being idled as the country suffers its deepest recession in more than a generation as consumers worldwide cut spending on cars and gadgets.


Robotic Workers Being Laid Off In Japan

At a large Yaskawa Electric factory on the Japanese island of Kyushu, where robots once churned out more robots, a lone robotic worker with steely arms twisted and turned, is testing its motors for the day new orders return. Its immobile co-workers stood silent in rows, many with arms frozen in midair. They could be out of work for a long time. Japanese industrial production has plummeted almost 40 per cent and with it, the demand for robots.

At the same time, the future is looking less bright. Tighter finances are injecting a dose of reality into some of Japan more fantastic projects like pet robots and cyborg receptionists that could cramp innovation long after the economy recovers.

Domestic helper robots that would help around the home or even care for the elderly have also sold poorly in the recession. This almost certainly puts a crimp in Japan's plans to roll out a fleet of robots to help care for its aging population, when almost 25 percent of Japanese residents are 65 or older.
