A robot hailed as the most advanced created in Russia was actually just a man in a suit.
The android known as Boris took to the stage at a Russian technology conference to delight the world with lifelike moving and dancing.
It was so impressive that it appeared on Russian state television, celebrated as the most modern robot, and produced by a team of students.
But soon after its appearance journalists began to question the bot’s authenticity. In a picture published afterwards on social media, the neck of a person was clearly visible.
If the robot was real, it certainly would be one of the most advanced examples of robotics in the world. Soon after that celebration, however, it became clear that it was so lifelike because it was literally alive, with a man standing inside its body controlling its functions.
