Business Breakthrough University students in Tokyo were replaced with robots at their graduation ceremony due to the coronavirus.

Using “Newme” mobile robots with a tablet to host a Zoom call, graduates had the experience of walking across the stage and accepting their diplomas at the Hotel Grand Palace in Tokyo, virtually on March 28.

As COVID-19 has infected more than a million people and closed schools around the world, students have found creative ways to recreate cancelled events.

Students at the University of Pennsylvania were inspired by that ceremony, and recreated their entire campus in “Minecraft,” with plans to hold graduation and other events online.
