Modern techniques like 3D scanning, digital design, and 3D printing serve as essential tools in the development of these humanoid creations.

They enable the robots' lifelike skin, flexible movements, and patented lightweight mechanical structure, positioning them as the "world's lightest in their category."

EX Robots' strides in silicone skin simulation technology have propelled China to the forefront of the global race for innovation in artificial intelligence and humanoid robots.
