After getting in the field of robotics since 2005, Sha Yang Ye established this expensive but the unique Robot Wonderland in Taiwan.
The outside appearance of the museum is built with twelve-floor glass panels in order to create a bright space. Inside the Wonderland, it is divided into five areas: product area, renewable energy area, family AI area, interactive experiential area and the history of robotic evolution.
The product area includes Sha Yang Ye’s original industry, the micro DC gearbox, including the exhibition of different sizes epicyclic gearing and helical gear, and other popular products.
The renewable energy area shows robot artworks that have been created from the use of factory waste. The metal waste is given new life under the artists’ ingenuity.
The interactive experiential area allows visitors to operate an actual robot and experience any related products, such as a gigantic claw vending machine, fighting robots, and off-road robots, etc.
Finally, as the robots dance with flexible joints under the gorgeous stage lighting effects, visitors will experience a very extraordinary performance!
