What are the abilities of Omeife? 

If I understand the Igbo dialect so well, Omeife means “a doer of things”. Here are the many abilities of Omeife.

Communication: Omeife exceeds what we ever imagine will be feasible in the regions of Africa.

Omeife Africa’s first humanoid is multilingual. The Igbo female character Omeife can speak and understand eight different languages. The languages include of course Igbo, English, French, Arabic, Kiswahili, pidgin, Afrikaans, and Wazobia.

The most interesting part is that this humanoid speaks these languages using the native pitch of the people. She is so intelligent; her listening ability focuses on specific conversations as they happen. Her pronunciation of words, sentences, and phrases is so real and spectacular.

Also embedded in her software is the ability to make the right choice of words, she is very polite in expression. This quality makes her conversationally friendly.

Note that her expression aligns with the language she chooses to speak. If she changes from the Igbo language to french then her expression will change from following the Igbo cultural routine to French culture.

Omeife interacts also with smiles and other gestures that will guarantee flow in her conversation. If you say something funny, then you can watch the humanoid give a warm smile

Omeife is not a rigid design; she can improve her conversation, recall an old conversation and also engage in a new conversation. As I said; Omeife Africa’s first humanoid is the best that exists at present in the wide and beautiful continent of Africa.

Vision: Her vision is exceptional, she doesn’t run into you while walking, and she can detect objects lying on her path and avoid them.

She pays close attention to human facial expressions hence understanding their communications better. Africa’s first humanoid Omeife makes calculations of distant objects she sights.

Mobility: Omeife understands the terrain and her footing on the ground. This helps her navigate through non-flat surfaces and at the same time retain her balance. 

This humanoid utilizes GPS to determine its location and State-management to determine if it is standing, walking, chatting, and so on.

She makes facial expressions, hand representations, smiles, and other physical movements while speaking.

In addition, Omeife Africa’s first humanoid understands form and grasps items with one's hand.

What is the Future Of Omeife Africa’s First Humanoid?

With Omeife leading the queue in this Africa’s journey toward technological invasion. We’re still asking; will Omeife undergo an upgrade in the nearest future or will she give way to a new army of African robots? 

It’s difficult to say, but since most of the materials used in creating Omeife are gotten locally, there is a chance we will see other robots from the uniccorn group.

Moreover talking about omeife’s future, a closer look at her skin is not totally appealing. It’s not as beautiful as the popular Sophia humanoid of Hanson Robotics.

This shows that the group still has work to do in upgrading it. Maybe there will be further work on its aesthetic appearance. They can also improve her physicality by making her strong enough to do some lifting.

Will Unicorn Group Commercialize Omeife?

According to CEO CHuks Ekwueme, Uniccon Group is hoping to improve the humanoid to the point where it can be mass-produced and sold for $30,000 and higher.

Because there aren't many robot mass-production firms in the world right now, mass-manufacturing and selling for such a high price might be a long shot. 

It may also take some time for the world to accept the commercialization of an African-made robot, as opposed to those from other robotic companies like Tesla that have been in the game for decades.

If things work out right, then Omeife Africa’s first humanoid may have a higher market value than the likes of Tesla’s Optimus.
