A robotic startup is offering 78 Lakhs (£100,000) for using your face on their upcoming humanoid robots.
Geomiq is a London-based company that has recently published a blog about finding a face for their robot. The face needs to be "Kind and friendly". They have not revealed much information about the robot yet as it is still in the development phase. The only detail that has been revealed is that the robot is going to be for elderly people. It is going to be a companion to them.
“A few weeks ago we were approached by a robotics company asking if we could help it with the finishing touches of a state-of-the-art humanoid robot it’s been working on. Details of the project are scarce due to a non-disclosure agreement we’ve signed with the designer and his investors, but this is what we do know.”

The offer seems really attractive and a lot of people are actually considering it because of the money involved in it. There are risks involved too as the company is just a startup, what if they decide to change their business model at some point of time. There can be some risks involved in your face being used somewhere where you don't want it to be used.
