In Japan it seems that the crane machine is both an art and a science and it never ceases to amaze me as to what companies cook up for cranes there. I am a big fan of integrating robotics into the arcade scene and this latest “crane” machine does just that. Called Robo Catcher, the player controls a robot inside of the booth and they attempt to grab the prizes at the bottom using the robots arms. It’s a pretty cool concept and to do the idea justice, here is a video of Robo Catcher in action.
