😖Social Distancing Graduation? College Graduates In Japan Attend Graduation Ceremony Via Robots


It is real out here. Anytime there are robots representing the graduates. WTF? So now we are conducting social distancing graduations via robots. That is what happened at the Business Breakthrough University in Japan. We don’t know if this is sad or great, but congratulations to the REAL graduates! COVID-19 has really changed the way that we do life.


Business Breakthrough University held their graduation ceremony at Hotel Grand Palace in Chiyoda-ku, Tokyo On March 28th.

Graduate students were able to control a ‘newme’ robot during the ceremony.

They were able to control these robots from a remote location so that they would still have an opportunity to receive their diploma.

At the graduation ceremony, four graduates operated their ‘newme’ while the rest of the graduates watched online by using ZOOM.

The ‘newme’ robot had a tablet with the face of the graduate as well as wheels to resemble the legs.

One of the students who controlled one of the robots said, When I enrolled, I never thought I would operate my avatar and attend the graduation ceremony. However, receiving a diploma in public is a novel experience.”

We pray that everything gets back to normal. We respect BBT University for being innovative, but we would rather there not be a pandemic, and to see the physical graduates walk up to receive their diplomas.
