The Gundam Front Tokyo entertainment complex announced on Thursday that
it is collaborating with Japanese electronics maker Sharp to produce Haro robot
vacuums. The robot character Haro appears in numerous Gundam anime and video
games, and it has become a mascot character for the Gundam franchise and
Sunrise anime studio.
The latest edition in the Cocorobo line of robotic vacuum
cleaners will be available in green "Haro type" and red "Haro
(Char ver.) type" versions. Each unit features a plasmacluster ion
generator for air purification and a voice recognition function. The
collaboration model vacuum will also use Haro's voice to respond to users.
Gundam Front Tokyo opened on the seventh floor of the of
Diver City Tokyo Plaza on Tokyo's Odaiba island next to the newly rebuilt
1/1-scale Gundam statue in April. The complex's features include a collection
of plastic models from throughout the franchise's history and a hemispherical
dome theater. The Gundam Front Tokyo shop also offers a variety of exclusive souvenirs
and promotional items.
I had visited Gundam Tokyo Front (Diver City, Odaiba, Japan) about more than a month ago. Will be posting more images of the GFT later, here are some preview images that I had taken. Is really more immense to see this live in person then just looking at other folks' pictures online.
