South Korea Promises Robot Land Opening in 2016

In 2009, we heard that South Korea was working on some sort of massive robot theme park that was scheduled to open in 2012. And then, we kind of didn't hear anything for a very, very, very long time. Now that it's 2014, Robot Land is back in the news and apparently actually really seriously no kidding getting built. 

 

Masan Robot Land officially broke ground in December of last year. The first phase of construction will include a robot research and development center, a convention center, a robot exhibition hall, and robot theme parks.

 

This is all supposed to be finished by September 2016 (with the theme park opening first, in January of 2015), which seems optimistic based on how this project has gone so far. And once phase one is complete, phase two will add a bunch of hotels and condos and stuff, to open in 2018.
