A Robot Sweats to Help People

Oh, it's hot! Hot weather makes us sweat. Sweat comes out on our faces, under
our arms, and on our backs. Sweat helps us to cool down. But in very hot
weather, we need more help to cool down.
天氣熱的時候,我們會流汗來讓身體降溫。

But many people don't have air conditioners. Many don't have electric fans.
They can't cool down. When they're too hot, they can get very sick.
可是很多人沒有冷氣,也沒有電風扇。他們的身體無法降溫,就會容易生病。

How do people feel heat in very hot weather? Scientists are studying this.
But it's dangerous for people to be too hot. So the scientists made a robot.
It breathes! It sweats! 人們天氣熱的時候會感到多熱呢?
科學家也在做研究,他們做了一個機器人,它會呼吸,還會流汗。

When the weather is hot and dry, hot and wet, or hot and windy, how does the
robot feel heat? The scientists can change the robot's settings. Young,
older, sick, or healthy - how does it feel heat?
這個機器人還可以切換不同設定,來感受天氣多熱,是不是很乾燥、有沒有風。

What can we learn from this robot's sweat? We can learn what to do in very
hot weather. We can make clothes that keep us cooler. Our cities can learn
how to keep people safe. 這個機器人能讓我們知道天氣很熱的時候應該要怎麼做。

One sweaty robot can help us live safely in a hotter world! Cool!
