Cast your mind back to 2023 and you may recall seeing Ameca, the so-called world’s most advanced robot, pop up on UK TV’s This Morning and make headlines everywhere. Now Ameca is back, with a second-generation version being shown off at MWC 2024, complete with even more realistic facial expressions. 

I was first alerted to Ameca’s presence at the show when I saw a crowd of gawking MWC attendees transfixed by something. Naturally, I walked over to investigate and there I beheld Ameca in all its semi-skeletal glory, answering questions barked at it by MWC-ers – and leaving me with the uncanny feeling that I’d walked onto the pre-production set of Ex Machina.

The robot uses generative AI to react to questions in real time, ranging from basic ones such as ‘how old are you?’ to sillier queries like ‘can you dance?’ – reader, Ameca can dance, and likely better than your average nightclub goer.
