Sophia is a social humanoid robot developed by Hong Kong-based company Hanson Robotics
Sophia has moving 3D-printed arms and they're working on giving her legs.
Her skin is made of a nanotech material that Hanson invented and dubbed "Frubber," that has a flesh-like bouncy texture mimicking human skin.
Cameras in her eyes and a 3D sensor in her chest help her "see."
In October, Saudi Arabia granted her citizenship at a Riyadh tech conference.
