A Robot with human-like gestures and movements will star at the Gadget Show Live Professional on April 2nd.

The £12,000 robot will feature along with many UK exclusive products at the National Exhibition Centre in Birmingham.

Currently unavailable for private purchase, the NAO Robot is the most widely used humanoid robot for academic purposes worldwide.

The Robot boasts face and object recognition, automatic speech recognition, text to speech in seven languages, and whole body motion.

Graeme Menday, spokesperson for the NAO Robot, said: "This will be a great product for your kids when it goes on general sale and if you can afford the price tag.

"Robots such as the NAO are going to be in great demand in the future, playing important roles in our lives."

Other technology to be unveiled will include a water-propelled stunt bike called The Jetovator and a zero emissions concept car that runs on ammonia.
