Neon is a humanoid robot created by Mr. Tomotaka Takahashi from Robo Garage, to be exhibited in the celebration of the birth of AstroBoy, the legendary Japanese “manga.” Focused on sophisticated design and lively movements, Neon was developed to narrow the gap between imaginary robots appearing in manga and real robots. The exterior is roundish and has a subdued color so people will feel comfortable with it in daily life. Neon walks majestically and with wide strides. To realize this stability, Robo Garage developed a technology using electromagnets attached to the soles of Neon. This technology has been applied to Kyosho’s toy “Gunwalker”, which is sold throughout the world. The design used for Neon has also been applied to the robots following Neon, which are Robobee R and VisiON.

Features :
* Movements and appearance similar to robots appearing in manga
* Walks with wide strides using electromagnets
