    SHENYANG, May 5 (Xinhua) -- China has manufactured its first personal robot that can live at home as a partner.

    "Liangliang," an argenteous robot about 80 centimeters tall, is able to walk and navigate through obstacles at ease, as well as performing duties as instructed by humans.

    "Liangliang, turn right." "OK, I am turning right." And so did he in a recent debut in Shenyang.

    Its developer, the Shenyang-based Xinsong Automation Company affiliated with the Chinese Academy of Sciences, said the personal robot is able to provide services of education, entertainment and security and as a personal assistant.

    In the presentation debut, a staff sent a mobile phone short message to the robot inquiring about the situations at home and, in two minutes Liangliang replied with a message: temperature 22 degrees Celsius and everything normal at home.

    The robot can also log on to the Internet and tell its owners the latest news and weather forecasts. Enditem
