A Chinese designer from Hong Kong has built himself an android that resembles actress Scarlett Johansson.

Ricky Ma said it was his childhood dream to design a humanoid after becoming obsessed with robots and animation.

E&T magazine reports:

Dubbed Mark 1, the android is a product of creator Ricky Ma’s life-long passion for humanoid robots. Although Ma didn’t name the actress who served as his inspiration, the resemblance to the Avengers star is rather obvious.

The robot, which cost $50,000 (£35,000) to make, is now waiting for its big break.

Ma built the robot from scratch, inspired by hundreds of cartoons featuring humanoid robots, which he has watched since childhood. It took him a year and a half to put together the prototype, which can respond to a set of programmed verbal commands spoken into a microphone.

“I figured I should just do it when the timing is right and realise my dream,” said 42-year-old Ma, who had to acquire an entirely new skill set, including programming and electromechanics, to accomplish the feat. “If I realise my dream, I will have no regrets in life.”

The development process was very much about trial and error and Ma had to deal with many problems including frequent breakdowns of electric motors driving the robot’s limbs and problems with its stability.
