TEHRAN: Iranian inventors made a man-like robot named 'Sorena 2' which walks on two feet, discerns words and does other manly actions.
Sorena 2 -named after the Parthian Iranian warrior Sorena (84 BCE-54 BCE) who defeated the Roman general Crassus at the Battle of Carrhae- is 1.45 meters tall and weighs around 45 kilograms.
The Iranian experts spent more than 10,000 man-hours to design and build the robot which was unveiled on Saturday in a ceremony to commemorate the 'Industry and Mine Day' in Iran.
The ceremony was attended by Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad and other high-ranking officials.
Sorena 2 was born after another robot named 'Sorena 1' was developed in Iran two years ago.
