Iran Unveils Human-Like Robot

Yes, it's true - those wacky Iranians are at it again - this time, building robots, it seems.  Though at first glance, it appears to be a direct ripoff of Honda's robot ASIMO, this version surely has many innovations of its own.

read the report here

"Such robots are designed and developed to be used in sensitive and difficult jobs on behalf of a person or as help." according to the report.  I'm sure those "sensitive and difficult" jobs may include the expeditious delivery of suicide bombs, sans the human bomber.  Or perhaps these nifty robots could undertake the arduous task of building all those precarious smuggling tunnels between Egypt and Gaza.  Robots certainly would be ideal to fully automate the next mass yeshiva-slaughter for hezbollah.

Since the visage of the robot is a fully sealed and opaque helmet and mask, no burqa  is required for female variants of the device.

I'm sure it's worth all the design effort that's gone into it.  I hear it can hate Jews continuously for eight hours without recharge, with up to 24 hours of standby time.  With an army of these things marching across the Golan from Syria, laden with chemical IEDs and nukes, Tel Aviv may face it's imminent doom sooner than we all thought, eh?
