Yangyang : Is this pouting android the sexiest robot ever made?

Yangyang, A humanoid robot has blown away audiences with its ability to convey realistic expressions at Beijing’s Global Mobile Internet Conference.

The robot is co-developed by Hiroshi Ishiguro, professor at Osaka University, and Shanghai-based Shenqing Industry Co.

People will in the future be surrounded by robots which will be used in retailing, learning and health care sectors, according to Ishiguro.

An entry-level humanoid costs an affordable US$2,000.

Qualcomm, the world’s biggest mobile chip designer, said it has developed chips used in robots or drones, which can react fast in any environment.

China has a “10-year” period to develop both industrial and humanoid products that can be used in manufacturing, health care, education and other sectors, said Siasun, a Shenyang-based company.
