Cool Japanese robots – level 1

16-10-2014 15:00

There is an exhibition in Japan. It is about robots.

One robot can play tennis with you. It can see the ball and serve it. Another robot looks like a woman. It knows sign language.

One robot is really cool. It is a big dinosaur. You control it with your mobile phone.

Difficult words: exhibition (show or display), serve (hit), sign language (language which is not spoken but communicated with hands).

You can read the original story and watch the video in the Level 3 section.

What kind of a robot would you like?
