It's over 4-feet tall, but looks a lot like a human infant.

Its the "Child Robot with bio-mimetic body," known for short as CB2.

CB2's creators say its slowly developing social skills by interacting with humans and watching their facial expressions.

The goal is to have the robot speaking basic sentences within two years.

Perhaps then it will grow up to resent its parents and talk back.
