MSG Sphere, renowned for its gigantic LED screens and immersive experiences, is taking Las Vegas into the future with the introduction of Aura, the world’s most advanced humanoid robot. Five Aura robots will be permanently stationed at the MSG Sphere, located in the main atrium, to welcome and assist guests.

Aura is designed to have realistic facial expressions and full mobility. Unlike fortune-telling fairground robots, Aura has voice recognition capabilities and can focus on a person speaking directly in front of her at a time. With artificial intelligence, Aura continues to learn from interactions with guests, improving her ability to help and interact with visitors.

The robots will act as “spokespersons” and provide directions, offer details about performances, and answer questions about MSG Sphere’s engineering, technology, and creative mission. They will also act as brand ambassadors, assisting in managing digital platforms and social channels.

David Dibble, CEO of MSG Ventures, stated that Aura’s movements and facial recognition are impressive and fascinating. While some may find it spooky, her ability to track and interact with guests is impressive. The development of Aura and other humanoid robots took three to four months each.

MSG Sphere, which is the size of the Statue of Liberty or the Saturn V rocket, opens to the public on September 29th. U2 will be the first to perform a series of 25 concerts, followed by the premiere of a 360-degree experience titled “Postcard From Earth,” written and directed by Darren Aronofsky.

With its cutting-edge technology and immersive experiences, MSG Sphere aims to transport visitors to different worlds and attractions. The addition of humanoid robots like Aura in the atrium contributes to this theme and enhances the overall guest experience at the Sphere.
