Robot Company Offers $200K for Right to Use One Applicant's Face and Voice 'Forever'

A Russian Robotics Company has made headlines for an unusual proposition where one individual, in exchange for $200,000 USD, would forfeit the rights to their face and voice for use in robot development.

As the company announced the applicants' age and gender does not matter—however, their face must be "kind and friendly."

The company is known for producing hyper-realistic, humanlike robots. In 2019, the Promobot launched the "Android Robo-C" a made-to-order robot that could be modelled after the appearance of anyone.

Currently, Promobot is developing "a humanoid robot-assistant which will work in hotels, shopping malls and other crowded places"—and the company is "seeking a face" to model it after.
