Robotic penguin unveiled in South Korea

South Korean researchers, showcasing their latest line in robotic pets, have unveiled a penguin which can interact with humans.

Pomi (Penguin Robot for Multimodal Interaction) can see, hear, touch and emit smells as well as making faces, Friday's Korea Times reported.

The robot can move its lips, eyebrows and even pupils freely to make faces and can emit two kinds of fragrances to match its emotions.

Fragrances? - I hope it's not a penguin fragrance!
As cute and charming as they are, I don't think penguins really smell that great!
