RoboThespian was developed by Engineered Arts, a robotics company founded by Will Jackson and based in Cornwall, England. Designed as a "robot actor," RoboThespian was the first in a series of entertainment humanoids developed by the company over nearly 20 years. The robot features a range of expressive movements, speech, and sounds that can be animated in advance or in real time. In 2015, RoboThespian performed alongside two humans in a play called "The Uncanny Valley," which made its New York City premiere at the Brick Theater in Brooklyn.
