YangYang Robot: Female Humanoid Robot
Yangyang is a female robot that will cause you to marvel at the capabilities of modern technology, creep you out, or remind you of Sarah Palin — or maybe all of the above. The humanoid can talk, blink, smile, shake your hand, and even hug you. The robot, the joint creation of the Intelligent Robotics Laboratory at Osaka University in Japan and Shanghai Shenqing Industry in China, made its debut at Beijing’s Global Mobile Internet Conference, which ran from April 28-30. “I was born in Japan but grew up in China,”. Adorned with long brown hair, a red coat, and Palin-esque eyeglasses, Yangyang was formed in the likeness of researcher Song Yang, wife of the president of Shanghai Shenqing Industry and professor at Sanlian College in China.
