Bangladeshi develops humanoid robot from scrap

Click here: Reuters – Bangladeshi develops humanoid robot from scrap

A Bangladeshi graduate student is developing a robot capable of picking up objects, mopping floors and performing other simple tasks — at the fraction of the cost of other humanoids.

Feroz Ahmed Siddiky of the International Islamic University in Chittagong says his “IRobo” responds to voice commands, has spatial intelligence and is cheap because it’s made from scrap materials he’s collected from electronic shops and car mechanics.”On completion, this robot will comply with different verbal commands for tasks like shifting objects, cleaning floors and standing guard,” Siddiky told Reuters. “It can also be used for some risky jobs like in coal mines, where workers commonly suffer many accidents.”
