Technology advancement has been the peak of our generation as scientist research, develop, invent devices and deploy methods that will improve our daily activities.

Yet again, it isn’t surprising but astonishing that the first Africa Humanoid robot was developed by Nigerian scientists working under the Unicorn group at the Stem Focus Lab.

According to a video excerpt monitored by Voice Air Media, The robot was seen talking about itself, and what it enjoys doing.

The robot was named ‘Omoife’ according to a post made by the robot itself, it means “able to do many things”.

The amazing part that caught my eye is the robot’s ability to respond to Twitter messages, using emojis and the right choice of words. The robot’s Twitter handle is @iamomeife1
