Reuters Slams Japan for Lack of Nuclear Disaster Robots

Reuters skewers Japan for leading the world in manufacturing robots and for having rescue robots but not having nuclear disaster robots. This is a bit unfair as pretty much no country has robots (or at least barely plural) for nuclear disasters- denial and spending the necessary R&D money for this very, very hard type of robot is not unique to the Japanese, the US is in similar shape.

Thanks to team member Prof. Howie Choset for passing this along!
