Robots which tap into your feelings on show at Beijing’s World Robot Exhibition

Over 100 experts, 12 international organisations and more than 120 companies were represented at Beijing’s World Robot Exhibition. There they “met” robots that act just like humans like Xiaolou. The humanoid robot was made by Chinese company Tami Intelligence and it is known for its capacity to interact with people. So how is it possible?

“The robot has plenty of facial expressions, and it can give people a good feeling of interaction.

3D scanning makes choosing lingerie easier, says Hong Kong store

The 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show shouldn’t disappoint car fans, with new models for 2015, 2016 and beyond, as well as forward-thinking concepts for the automobile of tomorrow. Getting a lot of attention at the Frankfurt auto show was the Porsche Mission E, a futuristic, sleek, fully electric sports car from the German luxury car maker.
