The 2012 International Robot Content Show (RoCon 2012) at the Changwon Convention Exhibition Center (CECO) proved to be a popular hit.
The annual event aimed at fostering the regional robotics industry is co-hosted by Changwon and South Gyeongsang Province and organized by the Gyeongnam Robot Industry Foundation.
The exhibition held 448 booths and 58 companies divided into five zones robot, content, IT-SW, game and robot attraction.
In particular, the booth with 3D robot trickart was a space for children and their families to enjoy a hands-on experience on Children’s Day, May 5. As most people easily understand “trick,” it is artwork in which people can see an ordinary object as a three-dimensional one by means of an optical illusion.
The event also held the 2012 International Robot Competition to instill interest in young students about the future of robots. As a sideline event, about 30 foreign buyers from 11 states, including Hong Kong, were invited to an export consultation session.
