Tokyo's 2009 International Robot Exhibition brought together hundreds of robot companies and institutes to show off their latest and greatest robot technology.

From humanoid robots and dancing samurai, to cardboard-clad eco-bots and robotic receptionists, the mechanical creations on display at the 2009 IREX "robot festival" were fun and functional, exciting and inspiring -- and absolutely worth a look.

Check out some of the awesome robots on display at this year's IREX, then watch them in action in the video below!
