Robots of the Chinese countryside

This is a robot made by a farmer in China.

Wu Yulu, a farmer near Beijing, made a name for himself by making robots.

He started making robots at about 11 years of age.

Some of his robots can serve water, light cigarettes, play musical instruments, and write calligraphy.

“There are so many good things in life, and they become the basis for my robots,” he said.
