Hanson Robotics’ Spotlight Series: Meet Mengna Lei, Robot Animation Expert

Meet Mengna Lei, Robot Animation Expert, Hong Kong  

Mengna is responsible for our humanoid robots’ facial expressions and body gesture animations so the Hanson robots like Sophia are able to non-verbally communicate and connect with humans. 

Check out her video here (there are a few very funny moments you can’t miss). 

Menga has been very busy in her job as Sophia’s robot animator but had time to give us a few great quotes about her experience at Hanson Robotics.

What was your best day at Hanson Robotics?

When I was able to see our team’s animation generation system work on Sophia. Watching Sophia autonomously generate facial and body movements with language and animations that convey emotion is amazing.  

What are you most proud of?

Our Hanson Robotics’ team is brilliant at imagining and making the dream a reality.
