Engineered Arts’ Ameca robot will keep humans out of their comfort zone. The Engineered Arts’ Ameca robot gets offended when someone pokes a finger in its nose, and tries to prevent such actions. The researchers programmed the robot in such a way that it tracks a safe distance of interaction with a person, and interferes with human actions that could harm it.
The developers hope that Ameca robot will give people a glimpse into the future because it “represents the cutting edge of robotics technology.”
“Designed specifically as a platform for the development of future robotics technologies, Ameca robot is an ideal humanoid robot platform for human-robot interaction,” the company said in a statement.
“We are committed to providing you with innovative technologies that are reliable, modular, upgradeable and easy to develop.”
Engineered Arts was formed in 2005 and its first robot was a mechanical “Thespian” for the stage. Of the latest development, the company said: “Ameca reacts when things enter their” personal space. “
“It’s even starting to scare us at Engineered Arts, and we’re used to it!”
