FOR QUESTIONS 23 TO 27, READ THE PASSAGE AND ANSWER THE QUESTIONS THAT FOLLOW.
TINA OF TECMAC
Most of the robots in the Tecmac exhibition in Bangalore can talk, climb stairs or pick up objects but Tina, the little girl robot, doesn’t do any of these things. She is designed to look lovable. Tina is one of a new generation of robots and their designers don’t want them to seem threatening to human beings.
Many technological problems need to be resolved before people start buying robots for their homes, and scientists also realise that there are deep psychological issues involved. ‘The concept of Bio Imaging robotics is that robots can co-exist with humans’, says VC Ravi Chandran, the designer of Tina, the robot ‘friend’ and Rama, a singing, dancing machine and one of the most impressive robots at the show.
Another is Microman’s new robot called Moman and the company hopes it will one day be able to do household tasks. Japan is already home to half of the world’s industrial robots and 90% of robot pets. “I don’t think we feel uncomfortable with robots and we also love technology’, said Kazuo Hirai of Honda. The robots that appeal most to humans at the moment, however, are those that don’t have a human form.
Paro, a furry creature a bit like a seal, is used in children’s hospitals all over the world because the pleasant sensation of holding him helps the children recover more quickly. Not all robots are designed to be appealing however. For example, there’s the robot guard dog Mata 2. He has a camera and a mobile phone and can be guided by voice commands so that if you are away on a holiday, you can phone him and tell him Lwhat to do.
23. Why is Tina different from other robots?
A. She can climb stairs.
B. She doesn’t do anything.
C. She can talk.
D. She is likeable.
24. What information is available in the passage?
A. Updates on new generation robots
B. Details about an exhibition
C. Information about how robots are built.
D. Questions to find out whether people like robots
25. Why haven’t robots become popular yet?
A. They don’t look enough like real people.
B. They don’t work properly.
C. People find them strange and frightening.
D. They are too ugly.
26. Paro is a robot_______
27. What is the writer trying to do in the text?
A. Persuade people to buy robots that look like humans.
B. Explain how robots work.
C. Criticise robots that look like humans.
D. Describe the different robots that are being designed.
