In October, a robot museum with the world's first robot store will open in Nagoya, Japan. The shop will carry hundreds of robots, robot equipment and accessories. Perhaps the most interesting part of the venture is that the target audience of the store is actually "men in their 40s and others who grew up watching anime that featured robots," an undermarketed-to group that must have a fair amount of disposable income. The store's first specialty item will be the 39-cm high Nuvo robot, which is small, light and humanoid and sells $7,000 each.
