Iran Robot Just like Sony’s, if You Don’t Count the Nukes

Iran has developed a human-like robot for “sensitive jobs,” according to a government newspaper.

Soorena-2, named after an ancient Persian warrior, was unveiled by President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, who is slightly taller than the “4.7 feet” robot.

“Walking slowly like human beings with regular arm and leg movements are among its characteristics,” the report said. “Such robots are designed and developed to be used in sensitive and difficult jobs on behalf of a person or as help.”

The report did not elaborate on the robot’s additional “capabilities“.

Iran has pursued a number of scientific projects but has come under increasing international pressure over its controversial nuclear programme.
