Robot monk Xianyang Yer

Buddhist monks of the Celestial Empire have mastered the technology that has enabled them to create a robot monk. The robot was named Xian Yer. His height is 60 cm, he can repeat Buddhist mantras, move around and even conduct a dialogue on simple topics.

Xianyi Er more like a novice monk. His residence is the Longquan Temple on the outskirts of Beijing. He refers to robots of cartoon style, which is reminiscent of the touch screen, which he presses against his chest. In the asset Xian Yer, answers to 20 questions on Buddhism and everyday life.

Creator Xian Xiara – master Xiyan Fan called his creation “a vessel of wisdom”, which is destined to become a link between science and Buddhism.
