Haibao started out as a plastic mascot for the EXPO 2010 Shanghai China and has now become a functioning robot. There are 37 of them used for assisting visitors with information about the event and local transportation, and can even take photos. Best of all, the 1.55 meter tall bluish Haibaos speak 6 different languages. They will not only help out at the Expo, which takes place May 1 through Oct. 31, they will also hang out at Shanghai's two airports.
