Many robots in Tokyo - level 2
Every two years, Tokyo holds a robot exhibition called iREX. Hundreds of companies showed off their new designs this year.
Many people were interested in all kinds of robotic toys, but there was serious stuff, --a robotic suit, for example. This suit has artificial muscles which support the user’s body. The Japanese population is getting older which can be a problem. This suit is a wonderful solution.
Another interesting robot looked like a real snake. This robot is able to move very well even over rough surfaces. It can swim, too. This robot might help a lot with finding people who have survived an accident.
Difficult words: exhibition (event during which things are shown to people), artificial (man-made), rough (not good for transportation).
