Children with mental and physical disabilities watched the Olympics at a school in Tokyo with high technology provided by Japanese companies on Monday.
The visualization event, which took place at the Bokuto School for the Physically Handicapped in Tokyo, saw four different schools for children with mental and physical disabilities participate.
Students were able to communicate with the athletes through a camera, dance with the Olympic pet robot and watch games inside a virtual reality dome.
The robot was supplied by Toyota Motor Corps and the VR dome was operated by Panasonic Corps.
Shinya Shoji, the director of the Bokuto School for the Physically Handicapped, where the event was held, said he hopes the success of the event will pave the way for the celebration of others similar to any part of the world.
