    The prankster even got her friend to stand by her side with a remote - pretending to control her movements

    A prankster at a popular tech convention fooled many visitors by pretending she was a robot.

    Karen X.

    Cheng was attending the 2017 CES convention that takes place every January in Las Vegas, Nevada.


    Standing in front of a billboard, Karen put on her sun glasses and moved her arms and legs in a stilted, robotic fashion .

    To make her act even more convincing, she also asked her friend to stand beside her with a remote on a wire, and act as though he was controlling her movements.

    Predictably, some visitors to the convention were sceptical, but others fell for the trick hook, line and sinker.

    One woman even gets up close to Karen's face, and still doesn't seem to be aware that she is human.

    Another guest said: "I honestly can't tell.

    I don't know."

    Other visitors wanted to try the keypad and commented on her realism, including how authentic her skin looked.

    Just as her audience was convinced by the prank, Karen took off her sunglasses and started laughing, leaving the visitors completely stunned - and totally fooled.

    The video, which has been uploaded to Karen's Facebook page , has now gone viral with more than 391,000 views .
