Promobot, a European manufacturing business, is searching for a human face to place on one of their items.
The company announced that they will offer $200,000. This will guarantee them rights to use someone’s face forever.
The business’s aim is to have the new robot with a human face as a helper in busy places such as hotels and malls.
Promobot already has a buyer that wants to place the human-faced robots in airports, malls, and retail stores in 2023.
In March 2020, Arnold Schwarzenegger filed a lawsuit against the company for “using his likeness” on their items.
In February 2020, Promobot stationed a robot in Time Square. It questioned individuals on whether they had usual COVID-19 symptoms, reports say.
The company’s hope is to find a “kind and friendly face.” However, they didn’t disclose an age range or gender preference.
The person who wins will undergo a minimum of 100 hours of script recording. This will allow the robot to use their voice to assist customers.
