U.K.-based company Engineered Arts has unveiled a remarkably human-like android with a promotional video released on social media of it "waking up." In the video, the robot known as "Ameca" can be seen expressing what appears to be surprise as it opens its eyes and looks around and examines itself. When it notices the camera person, it then smiles and offers out its hand.
The Ameca has grey-coloured skin, with gender and race-neutral characteristics, but is being described as the world’s "most advanced human shaped robot representing the forefront of human-robotics technology."
"The reason for making a robot that looks like a person is to interact with people," Engineered Arts founder Will Jackson said.
