China is joining the life-size female robot race with their version of the beautiful receptionist.
(check out Korean and Japanese creations)

From Li Chengrong and others at the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS) Institute of Automation comes a Chinese "beauty."Li said the cost for designing and making the first robot was 300,000 yuan (US $37,500).
However, they plan to start selling the robots next year and the cost would drop to 100,000 yuan if they can sell 100 per year.
Potential customers would include star-rated hotels and entertainment clubs.

This robot is interactive and can understand and speak in a Sichuan dialect for her new job as a tour guide at Sichuan Science Museum.
