"Hanson Robotics" is the company who developed Sofia. Sophia has 62 different facial and neck mechanisms to create the natural-looking movement under her patented silicon skin. Sophia is Hanson Robotics' latest and most advanced robot, with strikingly human expressions and evolving intelligence that enables her to converse and build relationships.

Professor Einstein is the first personal robot from Hanson Robotics. Dr Hanson teamed up with Andy Rifkin, a toy inventor with over 40 years' experience, to develop a robot that would honour Albert Einstein's character and unique teaching style of explaining complex topics in a way that everyone could understand. Professor Einstein plays educational games, shares scientific facts and answers questions on a range of topics.

Sophia is an evolving genius machine. Her incredible human likeness, expressiveness, and remarkable story as an awakening robot. Over time, her increasing intelligence and remarkable story will enchant the world and connect with people regardless of age, gender, and culture in the future.
