Smoke Signals

Remember Wu Yulu, the farmer robot inventor?
He is still going, and more popular than ever on the art circuit, with participation at an exhibition at the Hayward Gallery, and a touring exhibition organized by Cai Guoqiang. This particular model is used as an anti-smoking educational aid for children, who talks to his audience as he lights his own cigarettes, whose detrimental effects are demonstrated when his chest flips open to reveal glass lungs. Wu Yulu was more than accustomed to being photographed, taking off his hat as the camera was lifted in his "museum."
Other robots on the premises:


Automatic Massage Table

Writing robot


unknown child robot
