Chinese Humanoid Robot Named “Yangyang”

A creepy new robot has been revealed in China this week – showing lifelike expressions that mimic that of a human. “Yangyang” was presented at the Global Mobile Internet Conference in Bejing with the aim of getting younger people interested in studying robotics. Dressed in a long red coat, the android can move its head, raise its hands and speak – fooling many into thinking it’s a real woman. The machine was produced at the Yangyang Intelligent Robot Science Service Centre and gave a demonstration of its range of emotions at the show. The eerie creation is the latest advancement in robotics that are swiftly becoming all-too-human.
