The way robots are being created these days makes us wonder what the future holds. Over the past months a lot of robots have trended on social media some being of sexual nature. Is this the future? Robots are now so refined that the only thing left is for them to have is blood.
Meet Jia Jia the latest addition to the robot family.
Researchers in China led by Chen Xiaoping recently launched Jia Jia the realistic robot that looks like an adult female. Jia Jia can move her mouth in sync with what she would be saying. She can blink her eyes and can casually look around the room.
According to reports, Jia Jia does not like it when one comes to close to her. She will ask for her space. Especially when one is taking pictures of her,Jia Jia is said ,"Don't come too close when taking pictures. It will make my face look fat." This is directly translated from Chinese language.
On the unveiling at China's University of Science and Technology, Xiaoping who led the research which lasted for 3 years, said that Jia Jia still needs a lot of things done on her. He said Jia Jia could not express large facial expressions which include crying or laughing. In the report by Xinhuanet, researchers have pledged to work on the these functionalities including making Jia Jia more interactive with humans.
On the launch, as soon as Xiaoping said, "Ni hao [Hello]," Jia Jia responded with, "Yes my lord. What can I do for you? [translated from Chinese]
Jia Jia also goes on to greet the audience ,"Hello everyone. I'm Jia Jia. Welcome."
As of now, mass production of Jia Jia has not been considered.
As technology improves everyday, we wait to see what the future holds for us.
