Korewa Honto no Robot Damashii

Korewa Honto no Robot Damashii = This is the real Robot Damashii. Hope I'm right about that ^^

Japan is truly the nation of robots, according to a statistic recently released by IEEE Spectrum.

For every 10,000 manufacturing workers in Japan, there are 295 industrial robots. Such density is more than three times higher than the U.S. (86), and about nine times higher than the world average (32).

However, when the number is being matched to the country's population, I believe Singapore will top the graph instead, since the population of Singapore is less than Japan.

Also, according to the same report, there are currently 1 million industrial robots worldwide, and Japan has the birth rate of 4.1 robots per hour. XD It's supposed to be the number of robot installed per hour in 2007. ^^ The global robot population is expected to increase to 1.2 million in 2011, three years from now.

So, if Skynet (from Terminator) takes over the world, Japan will be the first to fall. XD And mankind will have to survive in Africa. XD

Just kidding ^^
