Robot-Themepark in South Korea

Südkorea hat den Bau eines Robot-Themeparks freigegeben. Das Teil ist seit 2007 in Planung und sollte eigentlich bereits dieses Jahr öffnen, es gab allerdings Verzögerungen wegen Prüfungen durch Umweltschutzbehörden. Jetzt steht die Finanzierung jedenfalls, das Land für das Projekt ist fast komplett gekauft und der Themepark soll bis 2018 fertiggestellt sein. Sollte das Teil wirklich kommen, weiß ich definitiv, wo ich in vier Jahren Urlaub machen werde. What can possibly go wrong?

It is expected that Phase One of the construction, which will include development of public facilities such as robot research development center, convention center, robot exhibition hall, and private facilities such as themed parks and youth hostels, will be completed in September, 2016. Phase Two, which includes development of hotels and condominiums, is expected to be complete by the end of 2018.

Korea’s robot industry is showing rapid expansion with a 35% annual growth rate, and its global market size is expected to reach 500 billion US dollars by 2020 – the year by which the Korean government had set out to have a robot in every household. The Masan Robot Land Project is expected to create construction job opportunities while it is being built, but more importantly, it is hoped that it will create a large-scale consumer demand for intelligent robotics when it opens.
