Married by a robot.
A robot as a wedding clerk is the latest example of robots featuring in our lives in an extraordinary way.
China – in the land of smiles, a young couple have been married by a humanoid robot. RoboThespian stands behind the couple and speaking in his computerised voice, officiates the wedding ceremony. After the couple have said “I do”, he hands the rings to the bride and groom. The RoboThespian is a humanoid machine who can talk, dance, sing, present, act and even imitate emotions.
British company Engineered Arts have developed this life-sized robot so much so, that it moves about in a manner very similar to that of a human. These movements are made possible by an intelligent combination of “muscles” powered by the compressed air and maxon motors. In the hands, arms and torso, a mixture of A-max high performance motors and RE-max motors with neodymium magnets and planetary gearheads from maxon motor are used. Most importantly, the motors needed to be quiet and operate with precision to allow the smooth function of the RoboThespian. We think it’s a match made in heaven. And, the Happy Couple too of course!
