Buddhist robo-monk mixes religion and technology
from Fox News
Buddhist monks in China have harnessed technology to create a robot monk. The 2-foot-tall robot is called Xian'er and can chant Buddhist mantras, move via voice command and even hold a simple conversation, according to Reuters. Xian'er resembles a novice monk and "lives" at Longquan temple on the outskirts of Beijing. The cartoon-style robot holds a touchscreen to its chest and can answer about 20 questions on Buddhism and daily life.
