# Roommate, if you’ve been looking for a way to get down to a simple $ 200,000, you’re in luck – all thanks to a robot. According to reports, a Russian robotics company is offering someone $ 200,000 for the right to use their image and voice “forever” exclusively on their new robot.
@Newsweek reports that Promobot, the Russian robotics company, has a very lucrative offer on the table for a lucky person who agrees to permanently lose all rights to their face and voice for a new robot in development … in exchange for $ 200,000. Promobot is in the process of “creating a humanoid robotic assistant that will work in hotels, malls and other crowded places” but first the company needs the perfect person to emulate and is currently seeking “a face” to do so .
In the accompanying press release announcing the new robot, Promobot stated that the company is “ready to pay out $ 200,000 to someone willing to transfer the rights to use their face forever.” The only qualification that can be considered the robot’s new face is that your face must be “friendly and kind” while age and gender are not important. If everything goes according to plan and the company finds its ideal face, the robot will “start working in 2023”.
In addition, the company explained its ideas for the future of robotics:
“Our company develops technologies in the field of face recognition as well as speech, autonomous navigation, artificial intelligence and other areas of robotics. We have been actively producing and selling humanoid robots on the market since 2019. Our new customers want to start a major project and have to license a new robot presence to avoid legal delays. “
Promobot also says the robot will be used in American shopping malls, airports, retail stores, and more to completely transform working and service conditions.
