This lady is a robot. It is the world’s most realistic female robot and it made its public debut in a Hong Kong shopping centre. Hiroshi Ishiguro from Japan wants to make robots so realistic that people will think that they are looking at real people.

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

Hiroshi has made a lot of robots that looked like people. He even made a robot that looked like him. He says that one day, robots will be so perfect that we will not recognize that they are not human.
