Chinese researchers develop "personal robot"
We somehow doubt that Liangliang, the new "personal robot" developed by researchers at the Chinese Academy of Sciences, working with a team from Xinsong Automation Co., has nearly as much personality as Korea's latest bot, EveR-1 -- though we suspect it does look a little better than CASIA (pictured), an earlier CAS attempt at developing a personal bot. However, with the ability to walk, log onto the internet and receive instructions via SMS, Liangliang could find a place as the Party's eyes and ears in Chinese homes.
