Now having your own personal Holywood celebrity isn't a dream too far away.
Ricky Ma wai-kay from Honk Kong has modeled a life-size Scarlett Johansson lookalike, named Mark 1, from scratch.
However, Ricky Ma refuses to say who his inspiration to build Mark 1 was.
Ma spent over a year and $ 50,000 building the robot that now answeres to a set of pre-programmed questions.
When Ma complimented the robot 'Mark 1 you are so beautiful,' the robot responded with a smile and answered "Hehe, thank you."
"When I was a child I liked robots because I liked watching animation. When I grew up I wanted to make one," Ricky Ma told the South China Morning Post
When Ma decided to build this robot a lot of people told him he was stupid and that it would take a lot of money. Some even questioned whether he knew how to do it.
The process included 3D printing technology of the skeleton, skin and body. Ma even had to master unfamiliar topics of expertise like electromechanics and programming, fitting the robots external skin over its components and dealing with electric motors burning out.
Ma hopes sell this robot and write a book about his experiences to help and encourage other robot enthusiasts.
