FingerTec News | 05/11/2019
TimeTec Hubot made a high profile appearance yet again, and this time around it appeared at iGem 2019, International Greentech & Eco Products Exhibition & Conference Malaysia, on 10 October 2019 alongside the Minister of Energy, Science, Technology, Environment & Climate Change (MESTECC), YB Puan Yeoh Bee Yin, and the none other than Malaysia Prime Minister, Tun Dr Mahathir Mohamad. Hubot played a crucial role in the opening ceremony of a Green Revolution campaign and the launch of myGreen+ by the same ministry.

Hubot received many friendly approaches during and after the event, some trying to operate the android, while some others approached Hubot merely for the photo op. As it paved its way into various events, Hubot managed to accomplish another challenge and proved its capability at bridging the gap between people and technology.
Hubot successfully managed to impress in the three key performances:
In terms of reach, Hubot appeals to technophiles/technology enthusiasts, dignitaries, as well as ordinary people.
In terms of impression, Hubot raises awareness of the importance of future innovative technology. A robot today might bring us a fleet of useful robots for our tomorrow.
In terms of engagement, Hubot excites human-robot or even human-human interaction when it is used as an ice-breaker.
