Ro­bot Dreams

Han Lei, a young man in Bei­jing, shot to on­line fame af­ter he and his team spent mil­lions of yuan build­ing a huge ro­bot which can run 30 kilo­me­ters per hour. It can also trans­form and do jobs such as clean­ing cars. Han said he planned to uti­lize the ro­bot for dis­as­ter res­cue. He told me­dia that he has loved science since he was three years old and now he is pro­vid­ing a per­son­al­ized ro­bot-mak­ing ser­vice on on­line shop­ping site Taobao. Ne­ti­zens showed ad­mi­ra­tion for Han's per­sis­tence in achiev­ing his dreams, but also joked that what they lack was not the dreams, but the money needed to re­al­ize them.

Self-taught Trans­la­tor

A woman trash col­lec­tor sur­named Yuan from Qing­dao, Shan­dong Province won pub­lic praise af­ter me­dia re­ports re­vealed that she is skilled at English and has trans­lated an English novel and sev­eral English ar­ti­cles on jour­nal­ism, ed­u­ca­tion and aca­demic re­search. Yuan told me­dia that she has spent ev­ery penny she earned buy­ing study ma­te­ri­als over the past 20 years and she wished to prove her­self with her works. Ne­ti­zens found it a waste for Yuan to do clean­ing and sug­gested she shift to a lan­guage-re­lated pro­fes­sion af­ter re­ceiv­ing some sys­temic ed­u­ca­tion.
