Momochi Seaside Park, Fukuoka

We spent a few days in Fukuoka catching up with a friend, who lives near Momochi Seaside Park.

It was very cloudy and wet. But notice the guys on the right were playing beach volleyball…

We visited Robosquare to see robots of the future – it was a very interesting place. We saw many robots that were able to do complex stuff, that cost millions of dollars.

We also met Aibo, who was designed by Sony. It could understand some basic verbal instructions, and performed some tricks for us.

Visit Skywatch for more sky photos. Have a happy weekend.

I want a robot that does gardening and housework. I wonder when they will be available and affordable.

Dear Evelyn,
You are so good at taking photos. Nice! "Aibo" sounds interesting. It means a mate or buddy in Japanese. Robots can be our future friends?
Cheers, Sadami

That's quite a dramatic tower, but it's your beach shot with the moody gray sky that appeals to me most. :-)

Kaori said...

I wonder what's in the tower? Is Aibo really smart like everyone says? I'm interested in what that kitty facing the other way can do ;D
