“There are so many of visitors coming to our booth, expecting a look or interaction with the humanoid robot, unexpectedly. Our workers are nearly squeezed out of the booth. We have thought of the crowds at some distance when registering, so we booked the booth covering 352 sqm, 5~6 times large of that at previous expos. But it seems not large enough”, one worker from Qihan told the media.
