Ameca Humanoid Robot Facial Expressions Are Freaky

Engineered Arts, a robotics company based in the United Kingdom, has just released the first videos of its new humanoid robot named Ameca, which can make hyper-realistic facial expressions. It’s a stunning accomplishment in the world of robotics; it also happens to be terrifying.

The humanoid appears to have awoken in a robotic laboratory, as seen in the video below, while an actual human works in the background. In a matter of seconds, the robot moves its arms and displays a flurry of expressions. WATCH:

Engineered Arts, a UK company that creates the most memorable interactive character experiences, today announced its latest humanoid robot named Ameca (pron. Am-ek-uh). Through 20 years of increasing robotics innovation, the Ameca series features ground-breaking advancements in movement and natural gestures, intelligent interaction, and a future-proof software system designed to embrace artificial intelligence and computer vision with adaptive learning—giving users an API customization pathway never before available.

Engineered Arts’ Ameca humanoid robot will take center stage at CES 2022 in Las Vegas at the Great Britain and Northern Ireland Pavilion in Tech West Hall G—lower level of the Venetian Expo Center, at Booth 62502 & 62524 from January 5th- 8th.

Complete details, images, videos and specs of the Ameca humanoid robot are available at: https://www.engineeredarts.co.uk/robot/ameca/.

“A humanoid robot will always instil an image of what the future may hold. Ameca represents a perfect platform to explore how our machines can live with, collaborate, and enrich our lives in tomorrow’s sustainable communities,” said Morgan Roe, Director of Operations at Engineered Arts. “Ameca integrates both AI with AB (artificial body) for advanced, iterative technologies that deliver superior motion and gestures, all housed in a human form and robotic visage for a non-threatening, gender-neutral integration into an inclusive society,” added Roe.

The Engineered Arts team can create any robot figure in as little as four months. All Engineered Arts AmecaMesmer series and RoboThespian robot creations are available for ownership or through an integrated end-to-end rental program for special limited engagements and showcases across the world.
