 Ricky Ma, a graphic designer, spent over $50,000 and over a year creating Mark 1, a female robot prototype that was designed to look like an actress he won't name but strongly resembles Johansson.

The robot, which was mostly made by using 3D printed technology, has blonde hair, hazel eyes, plump lips and similar facial features to the 31-year-old actress.

"When I was a child, I liked robots. Why? Because I liked watching animation," said Ma. "All children loved it. There were Transformers, cartoons about robots fighting each other and games about robots."According to Ma, a lot of people told him that besides being extremely expensive it would be too hard to make his own robot but he was up for the challenge.

Ma hopes that his prototype will be bought so that he can have the funds to make more and also wants to write a book about the experience.

The robot responds to programmed commands and makes a variety of facial expressions. She also moves her arms, legs, turns her head and bows.

When told that she is beautiful, Mark 1 will respond with a laugh and say "Thank you."

Check out the video below to see the robot in action.
