This lady is a robot. She is like a real person. People can see her in a shopping centre in Hong Kong. Hiroshi Ishiguro from Japan wants to make robots which will be like people.

His last model is this young lady. She can smile, speak and sing. You can buy this lady for 110 000 dollars.

Hiroshi has made a lot of robots in his life. These robots were like people. He also made a robot which was like him. He says that in the future, robots will be perfect and that we will not know that they are robots.
