Robots are coming!
Sophia is a robot who admitted to her handler that she wanted to destroy humans. The creators of Sophia designed the bot to help the people in providing educational and customer services.
The robot uses the cameras installed in her eyes to ‘read’ the human expressions and respond accordingly. Sophia can also adjust the look on her face to respond, react, and to make an eye contact. However, the creepiest thing is her intention to destroy the mankind.
Sophia can give realistic expressions and also remembers the faces and her interaction with them that allows her to get smarter with time. Scary, right?
Sophie even wants to have her own home and family, but her ‘legal’ status refuses to allow her this luxury.

Despite her sinister plans, the incorporation of features like accurate facial expressions is a significant step forward in the field of Human-Robot Interaction (HRI).
Sophie is designed to give a personal touch to the human-machine interaction. However, now she is getting very personal.
Sophia will be up for sale in 2017.
