World’s ‘Most Advanced’ & Realistic Humanoid Robot Is Revealed In UK

The cost of making the robot is yet to be revealed.

Ameca has been dubbed the world’s most advanced humanoid following its creation in a British lab; it has spookily realistic movements and facial expressions. Cornwall-based Engineered Arts, who branded itself as the UK’s leading designer and manufacturer of humanoid entertainment robots, unveiled the machine on YouTube. 

Engineered Arts has unveiled a humanoid robot that can display human-like expressions.

Meet Ameca, the world’s most advanced humanoid created in a British lab.

In the clip, the robot was seen warming up its shoulder before opening its eyes and expressed a convincing look of shock or perhaps surprise. The machine even blinks multiple times and observes its arm with curiosity. The preview ended with Ameca reaching out its hand, admiring its combination of limbs and ligaments, sensor arrays, and actuators. 

The robot’s capabilities were shown via a video where weirdly changing expressions were seen.

Ameca came to life and marveled over its creation with accurate human expressions.

It’s no doubt realistic, and the next thing will be enabling the robot to walk around. Engineered Arts claimed it’s a long way off that but added that the face is housed on a human-like artificial body (AI x AB) that boasts a powerful Tritium robot operating system. They’re yet to reveal how much it costs to make the robot as it is still developing.

The robot appeared like a CGI at one point when it smiled looking at the camera.

Engineered Arts claims Ameca is the perfect platform to develop future robotics technologies.

This new machine follows the development of Sophia, who emerged in 2016. It was a super-intelligent human-like head with a realistic face that could blink and look from side to side. The humanoid robot created by Hanson Robotics, a Hong Kong firm, could chat, smile mischievously, and even tell jokes. 

Ameca contains some software that uses AI, and that its primary purpose is to serve as a platform to develop AI.

However, the humanoid robot will be brought to the public eye at the CES 2022 event in January in Las Vegas.

Sophia made history in October 2017 when it became a legal citizen of Saudi Arabia. However, Engineered Arts hopes Ameca will offer people a glimpse of the future because it represents the forefront of human-robotics technology. “We focus on bringing you innovative technologies, which are reliable, modular, upgradeable, and easy to develop on,” Engineered Arts, formed in 2005, assured.

So far, many people have since expressed their amazement at how realistic the machine is. One person wrote in the comments of the YouTube clip: “It’s the eyes. People take for granted how important eyes are when it comes to something looking alive. The rapid movement, the focus, the blinking, the attention they seem to pay to whatever is grabbing their attention.”

Another added: “I know we’re supposed to be scared of AI, but this is the first gynoid that hasn’t creeped me out. It’s pretty cool.” A third stated: “I seriously thought this was CGI at first. Great work! The hands look well done too.” A few people compared Ameca to the NS-5 series from I, Robot, a 2004 science fiction film starring Will Smith.
