Robot Land in the works

South Korea has announced plans to develop an industrial park dedicated to robotics.

Maybe in Robot Land Asimo can get the promotion he deserves.

Resident robot expert Tim Moynihan is too busy pitting robots against each other in the ultimate head-to-head battle, so it falls upon me to warn tell you about Robot Land, a proposed industrial park in South Korea. Intended to be the locus of the country's robotics industry, Robot Land will house robotics manufacturers, suppliers, and research centers, plus exhibition halls and a stadium for robotic competitions. On the one hand, that sounds awesome--all kinds of robotic goodness in one place for our edification and (more important) entertainment. On the other hand, Delos.

South Korean officials are expected to announce the site for Robot Land in November, and construction begins in 2009. Prepare accordingly.
