Chinese robot 'YanYan' looks surprisingly human

LOUISVILLE, Ky. (WDRB) -- A Chinese company has created a very human-like robot.

The robot sang a Chinese song, moving its hands at a ceremony in Shanghai.

A Chinese company unveiled "YanYan," a robot with an appearance based on the actual appearance of the company's CEO. The robot is moved by compressed air-powered cylinders to make natural facial expressions.

China is expected to have a large robot market in the near future.
