I didn't think Iran was tinkering in the realms of robotics but as it seems they do , and the robot does look quiet good if I might say so . Now to the conspiracy part of our forum , if they showed Surena 2 to the public , I wonder how advanced their prototypes are and what else they have hidden in their research labs .

Also I must say that this robot kind of reminds me of the famous Japanese one (forgot the name) , I wonder if they stole the plans or if its just a simple coincidence

Any relationship? I wonder if there are any Honda parts under Surena's hood?

I'm sure like most advanced Countries, they have more tech the public is unaware of, imo.

Peace

Iran


Japan


Personally I think the Japanese robot looks more professionally made when comparing simple things such as the presentation of the hands also the hip & shoulder joints.

Fear these things, people. Once robots have been perfected, the PTB won't need people any more and your days will be numbered.

Doesn't mean it may be any better than Iran's bot

While the Japanese robot does look better, we have to remember that it was built by Honda, not a college. I'm happy for these Iranian engineers, it looks like they accomplished something very difficult. I'm curious to see a video of it.

the powers must be incredibly patient. I bet that thing bumbles around like no ones business, seeing as its difficult for roboticists to replicate human balance or movement.

True, but that was 2007, and this is now:

Didn't say the Japanese robot was better, just looks better.





For a laugh I like to see the go toe to toe like in the rockem-sockem robots game.

I find it amazing and incredible that Iran is advancing even though the Western empire is holding knowledge from them.

IF the West allows everyone to acquire knowledge, and allow knowledge to be a human right for everyone around the world, imagine how fast we could advance to the future.

Iran has to do things from scratch, even their nuclear technology, which the Western empire has blocked them from having.

That is the right of every human being, to acquire knowledge.

Agreed, and it seems they did built it from the ground up.



Iranian state television says the Surena 2 robot weighs 99 pounds (45 kilograms) and is 4.76 feet (1.45 meters) tall.

It was developed by more than 20 robotics experts at Tehran University.

kind of a trippy picture...

A trippy picture... lol, i get you.

And just to re-iterate a point made in your earlier post:

Iranian technological advancement in robotics does not equal, or even imply any advancement in their nuclear program, from power plants to self-destruct bombs (aka nuclear weapons). Middle Eastern countries have a right to develop advanced technologies, despite their perceived "threat" to the "west", whose culture propagates fear and misunderstanding of the middle east. Which is almost certainly more of a threat to peace than anything going on in a Tehranian university.

How long until the American & Israeli governments try to use this picture as proof of Iran building & training new "robotic terrorist suicide-bombers."

While I do congradulate Iran for their achievment in the field in robotics, we could be certain that they have not invested as much time in it as the Japanese. I look at the picture with the President there, and his limbs do not give me the impression it moves as fluidly as Asimo.

But hey, they are doing better than most of the world.

Has no one wondered why the robots name is written in our alphabet instead of their language? If the US built a similar robot they would not use another countries language to name it. This seems like an attempt at very directional propaganda to less villify Iran and it's regime's image that is held by english speaking nations. Gotta love global politics.
