Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad unveiled a new Asimo-like robot, which they intend to use in “sensitive jobs,” according to government newspapers. The report did not elaborate what the robot can do apart from dragging its feet across the floor.

Soorena-2, which was named after an ancient Persian warrior, measures 1.45 meters (4 feet 9 inches) in height and weighs 45 kilograms (almost 100 pounds). It was an updated creation by the robotics team at Tehran University after its predecessor was introduced two years ago.

Another news reports that the Soorena-2 will eventually get vision and speech modules. The robot is part of a number of scientific projects Iran has been researching, from cloning to stem cell research to satellite technology.
