Engineered Arts, a UK-based robot manufacturing company, has recently unveiled a new humanoid creation, dubbed “Ameca,” that is capable of mimicking a series of human-like facial expressions, as seen in a video recently posted to YouTube.

At the beginning of the video, Ameca replicates the act of “waking up” with a series of confused and frustrated facial expressions after opening its eyes. Then, after looking at its arms and hands, Ameca appears to be amazed by opening its mouth and raising its eyebrows. Following a series of movements and various expressions, the robot then extends a hand out toward the viewer with a smile in the video’s conclusion.

While the robot has seemingly mastered the art of human expression, Engineered Arts says Ameca is currently incapable of walking, though the company would like to equip the humanoid with that power in the future, according to The Verge. The manufacturer’s main focus is to create ultra-realistic robots, while AI operations are handled by developers.

For those interested in taking a look at the robot in real life, Engineered Arts has announced that Ameca will be on public display at CES 2022 in January.
