One of the most talked-about gadgets at the Consumer Electrics Show (CES) 2022 was the Ameca robot. This realistic grey-faced robot has facial movements just like humans and can converse with you, but people are still asking: What is the Ameca robot?
The humanoid bot can respond to your questions and ask you questions like, "Are you impressed by me?". So, if you are curious to learn more about the robot, read on.
What is Ameca Robot?
In the robot's own words, "it is designed as a research platform for human-robot interaction". Communication and interaction with human beings are the major tasks of this robot.
The Ameca robot is designed to interact with humans in the same way as humans do. She has 17 motors in her face allowing her to make virtually all kinds of facial expressions. Also, she uses her hands and arms to make gestures as she speaks, just like humans.
What's more, she has cameras in her eyes, with which, she can see the face of the person talking to her and lock on to that specific person. Ameca has a speaker in her chest, through which, you can hear her replies.
Ameca is unable to walk yet, but the company plans on upgrading its abilities over time, so one day Ameca will walk.
Is the Ameca Robot Real?
Yes, Ameca Robot is real. In fact, Ameca is the world's most advanced human-shaped robot developed by a UK based company called Engineered Arts.
Last year, the company posted a video of Ameca's wide array of human-like facial expressions and it went viral. The Tesla Bot creator Elon Musk responded to the video with one word, "Yikes."
This super realistic humanoid robot stole the show at CES 2022 as well. See for yourself, Ameca is real and amazing.
