Humanoid Robot As Promobot Pays Volunteer $200,000 To Use Their Face

First look at Ameca, most advanced humanoid robot from Engineered Arts Designed as a platform for AI and human robot interaction!


Promobot found its face for their next humanoid robot, which will be available in hotels, shopping centers, and airports starting in 2023.

Promobot is a robot manufacturer headquartered in New York that is noted for its eerily accurate humanoid robots. Its robots are currently in operation in 43 countries, performing a variety of tasks such as administrators, promoters, advisors, guides, and concierges.


“Our company is developing technologies in the field of facial recognition, as well speech, autonomous navigation, artificial intelligence, and other areas of robotics,” Promobot said in a statement. “Since 2019, we have been actively manufacturing and supplying humanoid robots to the market. Our new clients want to launch a large-scale project, and as for this, they need to license a new robot appearance to avoid legal delays.”

It was recently reported that a new study published in the peer-reviewed scientific journal PNAS has detailed a team of researchers using stem cells from the African clawed frog (Xenopus laevis) to create the first living robots called xenobots. Researchers from the University of Vermont, Tufts University and Harvard University’s Wyss Institute for Biologically Inspired Engineering who created the living robots said that they have discovered a new form of biological reproduction called “kinetic replication”.

“Most people think of robots as made of metals and ceramics but it’s not so much what a robot is made from but what it does, which is act on its own on behalf of people. In that way it’s a robot but it’s also clearly an organism made from genetically unmodified frog cell,” said Josh Bongard, a computer science professor and robotics expert at the University of Vermont and lead author of the study.

What the researchers found was that this Pac-Man-shaped design of xenobot was able to locate and carry cells in its mouth, which would then become a new xenobot a few days later as reported on CNN.
