Hospital for Robots

Japan is once again leading the rest of the world in embracing robots.
If your robot gets sick, broken or you want to get it upgraded, you can now send it to the robot hospital.

Or maybe you bought one of those $1000+ robot kits and you are having a bit of trouble.

The doctor is in.
Azakawa Robots Clinic in Osaka, Japan recently began accepting patients. The clinic was started by the precision machine shop Systec Akazawa. (They also sell a 2-foot humanoid, PLEN, who can roller skate.)

The hospital has a staff of four robot experts and has seperate departments for repair and rehabilitation.
