An intelligent arm-wrestling robot named "Robo Arm-Wrestler", was unveiled to the public at the Future Tech Korea 2005 festival, held in COEX. The arm-wrestling robot was developed by Professor Chul-Goo Kang and his colleagues at the Institute for Robotics and Intelligent System (IRIS) of Konkuk University. Robo Arm-Wrestler greets people when they are approaching by saying "Hello", "Nice to meet you", or "Please take a seat for a match", and so on. Robo Arm-Wrestler has some artifical intelligence which automatically adjusts its strength for the challenger and it also considers its competitor's attitude and reflects his will and tenacity in deciding who wins.

"...considers its competitor's attitude and reflects his will and tenacity in deciding who wins"

So I take it that this robot is only taking on blokes? Fair enough after the humiliation previously suffered...
