Robot Appears to Push Away the Arm of the Researcher Who Touched Its Nose

This is scary to watch and the bot looks genuinely pissed, Ameca, the engaging AI humanoid robot by Engineered Arts that has a broad range of realistic facial expressions and responsive physical exchanges, appeared to instinctively push away the arm of a researcher after he touched it on the nose. The robot’s extremely human-like response about personal space freaked me out.

Ameca reacts as things enter their ‘personal space’. This is even starting to freak us out at Engineered Arts and we are used to it!
