The 2016 World Robot Conference is underway in Beijing, drawing big industry names from countries such as the United States, Japan and South Korea. One of the highlights of this year's event are humanoids that can interact with real people.

Humandroids definitely attract the most eyes in the expo for its ability to interact with human.

This means they can see, talk, and move around.

"Our Champion Robot played against a world badminton champion last year, it wasn't that good, but now it has improved to an amateur level. Its core technology is at visual tracking and predicting shuttercock's projection. It must also move accurately to hit the shuttercock. Our error is within 5 millimetres," said Zhao Jun, software engineer of Chengdu Champion Robot Technology.

Robotic technologies can also help interact with the nature.

These robots may be dancing, but they are of educational purpose. Aron Park is from South Korea.

China is the largest market for robots, and analysts say the country is set to have the most robots in the world by 2017.
