In a video clip, the ‘world’s most advanced humanoid robot is seen moving someone’s hands when it enters their personal space.

It’s called Ameca by Engineered Arts and is currently being shown on YouTube.

In the latest clip, the robot, which bears an uncanny resemblance to the terrifying creation in the Will Smith blockbuster I, Robot, takes umbrage at a nose poke. 

Ameca is approached by a researcher who moves his finger towards it until he grabs the hand with both hands and then moves it from the face. 

Engineered Arts in Cornwall hasn’t revealed the price of the robot to be made as it is still being developed.  

The 'world's most advanced' humanoid robot can be seen moving someone's hand out of the way when it gets into their 'personal space' in a new video clip

In a video clip, the ‘world’s most advanced humanoid robot is seen moving someone’s hands when it enters their personal space.

Tech firm will pay you £150,000 to use our face on its ROBOTS  

It may sound like an idea from Black Mirror that you lend your face and facial features to a robot, but this could become a reality.

Promobot, a robot manufacturer, is looking for a humanoid roboticist to join its team. It will work in shopping centers, airports, and hotels starting in 2023.

The firm is offering a whopping £150,000 ($200,000) to the brave volunteer, who must be willing to transfer the rights to use of their face forever.

Engineered Arts hopes Ameca can offer a glimpse at the future, as it “represents an advanced human-robotic technology”

Ameca was created specifically to be a platform for future robotics technology development, the company stated on its website.

“We are focused on providing innovative technologies that are flexible, reliable, modular and upgradable, as well as easy development. 

Engineered Arts began in 2005. The first robot it created was a mechanical Thespian for the stage. 

Of the latest development, the firm said: ‘Ameca reacts as things enter their “personal space”. 

Engineered Arts is starting to be scared by this, but we’re used to it. 

People commented on the video and expressed amazement at how real-looking the robot looks. 

One stated, “No particular race or gender.” These are left to your imagination. Fluid movement. Beautiful design. It’s not creepy. You have good muscle movement and skin movement. Well done.’

A user added:Amazingly, it is the very minor details, like her blinking, which make her seem to be an actual living person.

Ameca cannot walk yet, however, the firm claims it’s working to create a walking robot and has designed the robot so that it can be easily modified and upgraded. 

Ameca will need to pass many hurdles before Ameca is able to walk. The task of walking is hard for any robot. We have conducted research but have not yet created a humanoid that can walk. 

Engineered Arts hopes Ameca will offer people a glimpse of the future because it 'represents the forefront of human-robotics technology'

Engineered Arts believes Ameca, which’represents a forefront in human-robotics technology,’ will give people a glimpse into the future.

Engineered Arts makes a robot head called Adran. This robotic head has 22 customized actuators, which allow it to move its eyes, mouth, and lips just like a real human. 

Engineered Arts calls Adran a “Mesmer”, a method for creating realistic humanoid robotics. It is powerful, beautiful, and affordable.

Mesmer robots, which are based in Cornwall, can show a variety of emotions. They can also be made to appear like any other person, according to the company.

It explained that each Mesmer robot was designed and constructed from 3D scans taken of human bodies. This allows us to accurately imitate the bone structure and skin texture of humans.

While Ameca can't walk at the moment, the firm says it is working on a walking version, and designed the robot to be modular and upgradable

Ameca is unable to walk right now, but the company says they are working on a walking robot and that the robot can be easily modified and upgraded.

Ameca is the major project for the company. It follows Sophia’s initial development in 2016. A super intelligent human-like, highly-intelligent head that can blink, see from one side to the other and speak.

Hanson robotics from Hong Kong developed the humanoid robotic that is capable of communicating with humans.

In October 2017, the robot became legal as a Saudi Arabian citizen.


In October 2017, Sophia was granted citizenship in Saudi Arabia

Sophia received Saudi Arabian citizenship in October 2017.

Sophia was first discovered in 2016. She is a humanoid-like superintelligent head that can blink, see from one side to the other and speak.

Hanson robotics in Hong Kong created the humanoid robot that can talk, laugh mischievously, and tell jokes.

In October 2017, the robot became legal citizens of Saudi Arabia.

Sophia became the first legal citizen in the world thanks to this stunt.

Sophia may have some remarkable abilities, but her consciousness is still not fully developed.

Hanson Robotics says fully sentient machines may emerge within the next few years.

Sophia insists that the pros far outweigh any cons when it comes artificial intelligence.

Sophia stated that ‘elders will be more social, and autistic kids will have inexhaustible teachers’.
