The DSME Marine Robot Pavilion is the largest single pavilion at the Yeosu Expo. It was built by Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co., Ltd (DSME) which is the second largest shipbuilder in the world.
This pavilion focuses on robots, from how they are made to what they can do now and in the future. It is divided into three zones: Zone 1 (Entrance and Robot Cargo), Zone 2 (Robot Soccer and Robot Lab), and Zone 3 (Deep Sea).
At the entrance, plastic model parts of a robot are displayed on the walls and ceiling. Then as you enter the Robot Cargo area, you’re greeted by a beautiful robot that is similar to what you would see as greeters outside establishments nowadays.
EveR stands for “Eve” and “Robot”. Korea Institute of Industrial Technology started making EveR robots in 2005. The current model, EveR 4, has 30 motors (muscles) on its face that enables it to make expressions like humans.
The pavilion features robots that can dance to Michael Jackson songs, talk like humans, work underwater in the future, and many more.
The most memorable robots for me are the ones that can dance to Kpop songs.
Here’s a video of them dancing:
