This lady is a robot. It is the most real robot in the world. It was shown for the first time in a Hong Kong shopping centre. Hiroshi Ishiguro from Japan wants to make robots so real that people will think that they are seeing real people.

His last model is a young lady. She can smile, speak, sing and do many moves with her face. You can buy this lady for 110 000 dollars.

Hiroshi has made a lot of robots which look like people. He also made a robot which looked like him. He says, in the future robots will be so perfect that we will not know that they are robots.
