Remember the Ameca robot? The one whose expressive facial expressions caused a lot of enthusiastic reviews, but at the same time frightened many users with its realism. Let’s be honest, the “sinister valley” effect is off the charts.
But, as it turned out, that’s not all.
Engineered Arts brought a working prototype of Ameca to the CES 2022 Electronics Show in Las Vegas from January 3-7. Visitors to the event were able to see the humanoid robot live. And not just watch, but also chat, and also listen to malicious jokes in response to a question about a boyfriend.
Most likely, soon we will see the first stand-up show with a robot in the lead role. Why not?
