Organisers of the Jinzhou World Garden Art Expo in Liaoning Province, northeast China, came up with the novelty idea of introducing female robot guides to relieve the pressure & demand of teeming tourists on the human tourist guides.
Against positive expectations on the part of the organisers, the attraction proved too much for the robotic guide to handle. Everybody was wanting to take a closer at the attractive female robot with bright red lips and wearing blue silk ballgown. Before long, the visitors were grabbing, groping & fondling at her dress to see what was beneath her. Equipped with a speech recognition program, it can answer questions & travel around the expo ground.
Such fascination, curiosity & over-zealous action soon led to the break down of the robot before its expiry due date. The idea was for the robot to last the event over the summer until the end of October.
Consequently, human guides were put back into place. Perhaps, you wonder if handsome male robots were used instead, would the same fate befall on them?
