Comedian Danny Wallace really wants a personal robot. He wants it to walk like him, talk like him too.

He meets the HRP-3 humanoid robot in a Japanese research laboratory but even the most advanced robots are still in need of work.

Horizon: Where's My Robot will be broadcast on Tuesday 16 December on BBC Two at 9pm.
