‘Hi-tech robot’ shown off on Russian technology show unmasked as man in suit

MBKh Media insisted that the event's organisers did not try to pass off the robot as real, despite it being described as such on state television.

The video was shot at a high-tech show for promising students in the city of Yaroslavl that opened Tuesday, featuring "Boris the Robot".

The $3,700 robot suit has a built-in voice transducer, speakers, a microphone, built-in tablet with front camera, LED illumination, monochrome illumination of the eyes and mouth, which responds to the voice or Robot Alyosha.

In his voiceover, the reporter said it was hoped that young people, having had a chance to see "the most modern robots", would go on to work in robotics technology.

There's a good reason a humanoid robot that appeared on Russian TV this week looked so human-like.

"I understand mathematics well, but I want to learn more, like how to draw and write music", Boris said. Local reports noted a variety of things wrong with the robot.
