Astounding Humanlike Robot ‘Wakes Up’

Robot engineers at Cornwall-based Engineered Arts have unveiled a remarkably humanlike android, called 'Ameca.'

A short promo video released by the company shows Ameca seemingly “waking up,” looking at its hands and then toward the camera.

The 40-second clip has racked up well more than 10 million views online since Engineered Arts released it earlier this week.

Ameca has gray skin, with deliberately gender and race-neutral characteristics.

The company describes it as the "world's most advanced human-shaped robot representing the forefront of human-robotics technology."
