Korean Scientists Develop Female Android

Standing 1.6 meters tall and weighing about 50 kilograms, she can understand others, speak, blink with her eyes and makes several facial expressions.

But she is not human, rather an android developed by a team of South Korean scientists. It is only the second time in the world that an android has been developed _ Japan made the first one.

She is named "EveR-1", a combination of Eve and robot, looks just like a Korean female in her early 20s including her shape that is benchmarked against the nation's model.

From a distance, the android could be confused with a real, flesh and blood human being, according to Baeg.

The Korean robot can move the upper half of her body such as arms and hands but she cannot travel because her lower half is immobile.

Who wouldn't hit that after a few beers?
