We have launched production and sales of "Monsieur", a microrobot that is probably the world's first micromachine to move from drawing board to factory floor. "Monsieur" employs an internalized CPU-IC, rechargeable capacitor, two drive units, and a pair of photosensors to enable it to independently propels itself toward a light source. Skilled technicians assemble "Monsieur" by hand from a total of ninety-eight parts, most of which are general purpose watch parts.
