Mahru-Z takes time in robot development for 2 year, which is 1.3 metres tall and weighs 55 kilograms.

But, for a robot Mahru-Z have upgraded be can copy the movement that is like a human
The inventor specifies that, unless be usable a housekeeper already, still can apply work at dangerous with a human. But, the production for greatly the business still must take time moderately again

Mahru-Z, build from the budget in the research a robot about 3.5 million dollars every year on robot research. It began receiving state funds for the project in 2006.
