The sassiest robot in the world has arrived in Abu Dhabi

‘Sophia the robot’ is famous for being the first android to gain citizenship in Saudi Arabia and the first ‘bot to grace the cover of Cosmopolitan magazine.

It’s quite the list of achievements for a four-year-old (she was ‘born’ in 2015 when Hong Kong firm Hanson Robotics created her).

This week, the android made her way to the UAE, landing in the capital and being taken to Ferrari World Abu Dhabi. The robot regularly tweets to her 93.3k followers, and while at the theme park she uploaded a picture of herself, calling upon her fans to “caption this picture”.

One fan replied “when you get off the rollercoaster and your wig is gone” whilst another said “I hope I don’t short circuit!”

In January, Emirates Woman reported that Chrissy Teigen had met up with the droid, ending a (hilarious) year long feud.
