Feroz Ahmed Siddiky, a Bangladeshi graduate student from the International Islamic University in Chittagong, Bangladesh, has created a humanoid robot called Irobo. This robot is made up of scrap materials and odd parts that were collected from various electronics suppliers and vehicle mechanics.
Siddiky had been working on Irobo for two years. This robot has the capability of following various voice commands and can do basic tasks that could help humans. Its developer aims to make this helper robot more useful, and eventually replace human beings in odd and dangerous working places where humans could be at risk.
Just like any other humanoid robot, the Irobo can respond to verbal commands and mimic humans. The only difference is that this humanoid is made up of “trash” and costs only a fraction of what a usual humanoid robot would actually cost.
