Robot Maru gets a girlfriend

The Korea Institute of Science and Technology have developed a “female” remote-operated humanoid dubbed Ahra. This counterpart to the “male” Maru robot has a feminine voice and different body color.


Like Maru, Ahra is a network-based robot, meaning a high-performance computer plays the role of an external brain. The couple are in effect two separate bodies with a single brain. Under the command of the computer the two help each other with tasks such as moving tables. When shaking hands with a human, Ara senses their strength and adjusts her grip accordingly.
