The Israel Science and Technology Authority (ISA) announced on Tuesday that a new robot baby tattoo is to be developed by the Israeli Robotics Research Center (IRRC).
According to the IRRC, the robot baby tattoos will be designed to resemble baby dolls and children’s toys, and will be “used to promote the importance of robots in the home, the future of Israel, and the future, in general, of the robotics industry.”
The robotic baby tattoo was first published in the Israeli Journal of Robotics in June 2018, but it has not yet been officially adopted by the public.
The Israeli Robotics Development Center said the tattoo is meant to reflect the new technological trend of “robotic children and robots.”
The IRRC said the robot tattoos will include different designs for children and babies, and that it is aiming to produce up to 200,000 in total, of which up to 100,000 will be made to be sold in the future.
The agency said it expects the robot babies to be “a catalyst for innovation and development in robotics in the region.”
The robot baby is expected to be used in Israeli hospitals, and to be introduced at the upcoming RoboWorld conference, which takes place in New York from Oct. 7 to 9.
It will be marketed as an “innovative technology,” and will have a social impact on children, the IRCR said.
“The robots can be seen as an opportunity to bring robots into the world,” it said.
“The concept of robots as toys, which is being promoted, is not new, and we believe that we can use the robot as a vehicle to create awareness and change in the public mind about robots.”
It said that the robot tattoo is being developed for the children’s and childrens’ toys market.
The IRRA also said it is planning to “provide the technology, materials, and support infrastructure for the robotics manufacturing facilities of the IRRFRC.”
This is the first time that an Israeli robot baby has been used in a public setting, said the IRRA, which said it was also developing an application for the robot for children’s use.
The robot is also being used in an effort to combat obesity and diabetes, according to the IRIB, which described the tattoo as “a way to promote health in the children and adults.”
The agency added that the new tattoo was a response to the obesity and obesity-related diseases that are now affecting young Israelis, and it is “aimed at improving health and wellness for the society.”
The robots are already being used for many other purposes, including at the funeral home, but the IRRB said it plans to continue developing robots that will be used to perform tasks related to “family life,” such as “mating, feeding, bathing, and cleaning.”
The IRIM said it also plans to use robots for research in the fields of robotics and artificial intelligence.
The robots will be operated by a “supervisory team of robotics experts,” it added.
The new robotic tattoo is also scheduled to be shown at the RoboWorld international robotics conference, slated to take place from Oct 14 to 16 in New Jersey.
