「ホースちゃん」がニコニコ超会議に 豪快な輪投げ披露




A robot built by KTC students “Nagero! Hose-chan” appeared on stage at the “Niconico Chokaigi 2017” Festival.

On April 29th and 30th, “Niconico Chokaigi 2017” was held in Makuhari Messe in Chiba prefecture.

“Niconico Chokaigi” is a major and unique festival organized by Japan’s video social website “Niconico”.

2 years ago, “Nagero! Hose-chan” won a Good Design Award and a Special Award in the Tokai-Hokuriku Regional NHK Student Robot Contest and competed in the national contest. Because of its unique appearance and tremendous impact when it threw rings onto poles, it attracted a large audience and was chosen to appear in the NHK robot contest 30th anniversary poster.

At “Niconico Chokaigi 2017”, other famous robots that competed in the Robocon were also invited to celebrate the 30th anniversary of NHK Robot contest. Robots competed in throwing rings onto poles, which was very much like in the actual contest. Visitors got a chance to see and actually control these robots.
