VR Interfaces: Ahra-A


Overview of Ahra-A
The first of the Ahra series of robots was produced by KIST - the Korean Institute of Science and Technology - in 2005. This robot was identical in weight, height and body shape to the Mahru robots the institute also develops. However, there were some differences. Ahra's body was coloured orange and white instead of the blue and white of the Mahru series.

She spoke with a feminine vocal pitch and tone, and had a slightly more demure style of movement. It is not clear if robots beyond the prototype were produced in the female chain, but it was made clear that KIST views the Mahru series as exclusively male, through her production.
