Davide writes "Many of us think that all the humanoid robots are Japanese or Korean. Actually, there is a quite interesting human size robot that comes from UAE, REEM-A. It has some interesting skills as dynamic walking (of course), object recognition, voice recognition, self localization and mapping, long battery life and face recognition ("where have I seen you before?"). Recently, the development team announced that the second prototype, REEM-B, will be presented in February 2008. The second prototype got many improvements: a fingered hand with 12 motors, the ability to go up and down stairs, additional force sensors on the arms, ultrasonic range finders to avoid obstacles and a completely new look (but we must wait 2 more months to find out how REEM-B looks like)."
