Watch Will Smith try to flirt with Sophia the Robot, she wasn’t impressed
Back in January, we wrote about that robotics startup that was designing lifelike robots to build trust with humans. Hanson Robotics is the first startup company to develops the world’s most human-like robots. The company is best known as the creator of Sophia, a talk show-going robot partly modeled on Audrey Hepburn. In October 2017, the Sophia became a Saudi Arabian citizen, the first robot to receive citizenship of any country. Sophia is able to display more than 62 facial expressions.
Now, actor Will Smith tries to flirt with Sophia the robot. In a video posted on his YouTube channel, things get awkward when Will meets Sophia the Robot for an intimate conversation in the Cayman Islands. At one point in the video, Will \tries to kiss Sophia but the humanoid Robot was not very impressed by his flirting.
The Hanson Robotics’ creation sat down with Smith for a date in the romantic Cayman Islands in a video posted Thursday. “I’m actually made mostly of silicone, plastics, and carbon fiber. Also I prefer electronic music but I don’t mind 80’s hip-hop,” she said.
