Luo Jinsha drives his home-made aircraft during a test flight on the outskirts of Shanghai, February 26, 2014. Luo, 28, a migrant worker living in Shanghai, spent around eight months and 40,000 yuan ($6,529) to build the plane to fulfil his dream to fly. Despite failing during the first test flight, Luo said he will not give up hope on improving his plane so as to eventually fly it successfully. The aircraft was able to move quickly on the ground but could not take to the air on second attempt. REUTERS/Aly Song

Chinese inventor Tao Xiangli controls his home-made humanoid robot with a remote controller as he poses with it during a photo opportunity at his house located in a old residential area in Beijing August 8, 2013. The self-taught Chinese inventor built the home-made robot, named "The King of Innovation", out of scrap metal and electronic wires that he bought from a second-hand market. Tao completed his creation in less than a year, with costs of production and living expenses amounting to 300,000 yuan ($49,037). However, the robot, which measures 2.1 metres (6.9 feet) in height and 480 kg (1058 lbs) in weight, turned out to be too tall and heavy to walk out of the front door of his house. It can perform simple movements with its hands and legs and also mimic human voices. REUTERS/Kim Kyung-Hoon

"I hope to sell my submarine as a civil product with the price of about 100,000 yuan ($15,670) after safety tests, and a merchant has decided to order one in this month", Zhang said.
