A farmer, Wu, who never went to school at all and does not know how to use the internet is building amazing robots in China.
Known as the Iron Man of China, Wu showcased the different things he has built while he was speaking with Nas Daily.
He was poor and a dropout
The man lives in a remote village where most people are farmers, poor, and do not speak English. Wu is not just building robots for fun, some of them can talk, walk and pour water for him.

There are others who can write Chinese, and even carry him around like a vehicle. The man who dropped out of school fell in love with robots 30 years ago.
Since then, Wu has built 100 of them that can do 100 different things. Calling the robots his children, the man said he once accidentally burnt down his house while building one.
His life turned around
He was in serious debt as a result of that and his marriage suffered a big hit. Wu would later win many robotic competitions that made him rich. He now sells robots for a living and teaches other people how to build one.

In an exclusive interview with YEN.com.gh, the man said that he is from Orin Ekiti in Ekiti state. He had his secondary school education at the Polytechnic High School in Ibadan.
He said he would have wanted to study mechanical engineering at the Olabisi Onabajo University but he was denied admission on two different occasions.
