Availability And Applications.

It’s still early days for expressive humanoid robots and Ameca Desktop is not yet a consumer product.

As of Q3 2023 we are producing very limited quantities which are available for qualified applications, these include research lab use and some selected commercial applications.

We are always happy to talk about application ideas and to provide demonstrations of our technology.

We are also able to work with you on customized solutions, please get in touch.

Todays robotics for tomorrows AI

Modular by design

Both hardware and software is modular, making it easily upgradable.

All modules can run independently so you can have just a head, or even only an arm. No need for a full robot.

Head in the clouds

Built from the ground up with a cloud connected focus, all our robots can benefit from the latest and greatest the tech community have to offer.

Gain access to all the robots data, control it as your personal avatar, animate and simulate, all available from anywhere in the world.

Natural motion

Smooth, lifelike motion and advanced facial expression capabilities means Ameca can strike an instant rapport with anybody.

Ameca is the perfect platform to develop interaction between us humans and any metaverse or digital realm.

What people say

“Engineered Arts have been very supportive”

"As far as I have worked with various robotic platforms, RoboThespian is a unique one in terms of its design and features. The well-designed and elegant structure of RoboThespian allows mimicking human movements in a seamless way. The simplicity of its backend system in programming complex tasks has enabled us to teach students to program complex movements scenarios and behaviours. The team of Engineered Arts have been very supportive in guiding us through the installation and programming steps. Due to these facts, I would highly recommend Engineered Arts technologies for any robotics lab"
Dr. Abdullah Almeshal, College of Technological Studies – RAiLab, Kuwait.

We were fantastically supported by Marcus

"We worked with Engineered Arts to develop custom content for our RoboThespian, including our own touchscreen interface design. We were fantastically supported by Marcus and the team throughout the customisation process. We were able to create the baseline content wholly through user testing ideas with online participants using Virtual RoboThespian via video calls. It was a really useful tool for engaging with users virtually during the pandemic and allowed us to tailor the content in terms of both script, tone and movement. The whole process gave us a fantastic amount of freedom to create something that hasn’t existed in a science centre before! Our early visitors have said "It’s fascinating to see a human sized robot" and "He's really visually striking this is the exhibit that resonates the most"
Rose O’Reilly, Content Developer, We The Curious, Bristol UK

Grandparents and toddlers singing, laughing and creating memories together

Our RoboThespian has been greeting visitors at the entrance to Carnegie Science Center’s “RoboWorld™” for over a decade, introducing the gallery, explaining robot basics, conducting sing-alongs, and cracking bad jokes to hundreds of thousands of guests. Technically, the ease of maintenance and the responsivity of the Engineered Arts team ensure his ‘down time’ has been minimal; any software glitches (few and far between) or updates can be handled remotely, and the ordering and delivery of occasional replacement parts is swift and efficient. And the interface kiosk for guest use is intuitive and engaging; my offices are right off the RoboWorld gallery, so I have the benefit of seeing a wide demographic of visitors enthralled by his antics. Especially satisfying is seeing multi-generation engagement – grandparents and toddlers signing, laughing and creating memories together. “Andy Roid” (a nod to both our founder Andrew Carnegie and ‘androids’) is a favorite of both staff and guests. 
Dennis Bateman, Director, Carnegie Science Center

I cannot thank Engineered Arts enough!

"I cannot thank Engineered Arts enough for their fabulous robot. The robot itself is top quality design and engineering, and we are constantly surprised by the elegance of the design and the quality of the make and materials. It is astonishingly reliable. The technical support is as outstanding as the robot, with experts able to direct and assist with the running on every detail of the robot. We were concerned about having enough technical ability to own a robot. We needn't have worried. The interface is extremely intuitive, allowing us to really be creative with full confidence in the robot and the supporting software. Our robot is very well received by people, and allows us full freedom in our creative industry. Both the robot and the team are brilliant, and I cannot recommend highly enough."
Lucy Seal, Curator of Ai-Da Robot. The world’s first ultra-realistic robot artist

“It´s easier than Ikea to set up!”

"When we approached Engineered Arts about RoboThespian we had a bold project in mind, we wanted to ask local school children to create content for the robot to engage the local community around green energy projects in Scotland. Engineered Arts took the children's ideas and created bespoke content that visitors can play from our touchscreen console that was supplied. Our installation engineer said "It´s easier than Ikea to set up, It was real fun! My compliments, I was pretty impressed!"
Bryan Snelling, Aberdeen Science Centre

What people ask

Not yet. There are many hurdles to overcome before Ameca can walk. Walking is a difficult task for a robot, and although we have done research into it, we have not created a full walking humanoid.
However, Ameca is a modular robot, we plan on upgrading its abilities over time so one day Ameca will walk.

A big question. Ameca contains some software which can be described as ‘artificially intelligent’, but the question is bigger than that, check out our explanation of the difference between robots and AI.
The main purpose of Ameca is to be a platform for developing AI. We love designing and building robots, we’ll leave it to you and all the other amazing (naturally intelligent) brains out there to create the AI and machine learning alogrithms and see how far we can progress the technology together.

If anything doesn’t go to plan, our engineers can access and troubleshoot your robot remotely, instantly diagnosing the problem and often fixing any issue on the spot, even something as small as an eyelid movement. u003cbr/u003eWe are also happy to give development support for Ameca and the Tritium system
