Who was your first robot friend? And where did you know him from? Well, for me it's Astro Boy. I used to stay in front of the TV every day to wait for him when I was a little kid. As per the original plot, the Astro boy was born on April 7th, 2003 and should have be seven years old now.

Unfortunately we still haven't seen any robot that can match his super power. But we still believe that those robots we see in cartoons, TVs and movies will someday become true.

When "Transformers" first hit the small screen, boys were thrilled to see how cars could transform into giant robots to fight against evil.

Doraemon from Japan is a cute omnipotent robot who has everything to amaze his friends, but is always afraid of a tiny mouse.

Created by human beings, the relationship between robots and people is always an interesting theme for movies. In some cases, they are the cold-blooded enemies that terrify people.

But in some other cases, they are warm, curious creatures who possess emotions and see human beings as their parents.

We believe that people and robots can find a way to be friends.

One day we may get so connected that they can share every bit of joy and sorrow in our life.
