Matt Fischer, CTO of KumoTek Robotics in Richardson, TX sent us a copy of their latest press release and writes, "We are launching a huge interactive robotics exhibit in Chicago". The exhibit features robot dinosaurs built by Kokoro in Japan and loaded with interactive robot technology from KumoTek.

RoboSUE, a robotically animated recreation of the famous Tyrannosaurus rex skeleton, is the main attraction in the experience. She is outfitted with cameras, sensors and artificial intelligence which is sure to scare anyone that comes near. The show is not scripted and no two visitors will have the same experience. The dinosaurs track guests in real-time, responding based on the actions of each individual visitor, and even interact among themselves.

The exhibit opened yesterday and runs through September 6, so check it out if you're in the area. Read on for the full text of KumoTek's press release.
