The Sphere in Las Vegas is taking a leap into the future of entertainment with the introduction of “life-like” robots that will interact with guests at the venue. Named Aura, these humanoid robots are described as the world’s most advanced.
Aura will permanently reside in the grand atrium of the Sphere, serving as the venue’s “spokesbot.” With their life-like facial expressions and mobility, the five Aura robots will greet guests from the moment they enter.
Not only are these robots visually impressive, but they are also knowledgeable. As experts on the Sphere, Aura can answer complex questions about the groundbreaking engineering, custom-designed technology, and the creative mission of the venue. They can also provide directions within the venue and details on each day’s performances.
According to David Dibble, the CEO of MSG Ventures, a division of Sphere Entertainment, Aura’s role at the Sphere marks an innovative application of robots in the entertainment industry. The goal is to enhance the guest experience and push the boundaries of how robotics can be used to transform the way people experience live events.
The Sphere, which is set to debut on September 29th, will feature U2 as the first concert to be held inside the venue.
With the introduction of Aura, the Sphere is creating an exciting and interactive experience for guests, with the aim of showcasing the future of live entertainment.
