A smart robot named Phoenix was created by Canadian startup Sanctuary AI. He is 170 cm tall and weighs 70 kg and lifts weight up to 25 kg!

Externally, the upper part of Phoenix is very similar to the human. His hands move like a man’s. He “feels” things by touch and determines how much effort should be applied to them. The robot is able to move at a speed of 5 km / h. It is managed by the self-learning Carbon Artificial Intelligence Program.

Phoenix learns new actions from a person who demonstrates to him how it is done. He remembers all actions and is able to repeat them without help.

It is currently unknown when the Phoenix will hit the market.

Previously, an unusual kissing machine at a distance was invented by a Chinese startup. It transmits data about kisses to users. The robot collects data using motion sensors that are hidden in moving mechanical lips, reproducing kisses. The strange device was named MUA, after the sound that its people usually make during kisses.
