Feroz Ahmed Siddiky(R)of the International Islamic University in Chittagong is developing a robot capable of picking up objects, mopping floors and performing other simple tasks - at the fraction of the cost of other humanoids cheap because it's made from scrap materials he's collected from electronic shops and car mechanics.

The Bangladeshi graduate student, who is currently discussing commercial production of the robot with an Australian software firm, says his "IRobo"responds to voice commands, and has spatial intelligence. On completion, this robot will comply with different verbal commands for tasks like shifting objects, cleaning floors and standing guard. It can also be used for some risky jobs like in coal mines, where workers commonly suffer many accidents. I hope people will be able to buy it for less than $1,000."
