Sci-tech 'temple fair' celebrates Spring Festival
Adjust font size:

Temple fairs are popular during holiday, and museums are trying to get a piece of the action. One museum is marketing itself a science and technology temple fair.

At a science museum in Beijing, five robots are welcoming visitors with New Year's greetings.

These robots are famous after a stint last year as envoys of the Beijing Olympic Games. After a half-year tour across the nation, they've returned to the capital city to perform for Spring Festival.

A visitor said, "They can stand up with only one leg. I wonder how they can do it for so long."

What most impressed these people was the debut of training machines used by China's national sports teams.

One seventy year-old man found out what it's like for a professional athlete to train for yacht racing, "It's a very good opportunity to experience this. I want to try all the machines here."

Event organizer said, "The machine can measure your heart beating, racing distance and other data to help your train."

These two kids are comparing their swimming skills. Without setting foot in the water, this training machine can improve arm strength crucial for top competitors.

Surrounded by these young people is a man wearing a small gadget. It's not headphones, but a device for monitoring the wearer's health.

Connected with a computer, it can measure your breathing rate, heart rate, and other targets quickly, displaying your level of health through a picture of a tree. The more leaves the tree has, the better your health is.
