Scientists have made robots that read the news. They look (seem), sound (make voice) and act (behave; do things) like humans. There are two robots, called “Kodomoroid” and “Otonaroid”. Their names use the English word “android” with the Japanese words for child and adult. They read news on (about) an earthquake in Tokyo. One day they might (possibly) read the news on TV.
Japanese companies spend a lot of (large amount of) money on robots. Japanese people like robots. They think they are helpful and cute (pretty or attractive). Westerners (People from the western part of the world) think robots are a little scary (make you feel fear).
A professor said: “We will have more and more robots in our lives in the future.” He said: “robots are now cheaper to buy. They are the same price as a laptop computer.”
