‘Youth of Heaven’ Android

Veldan, a humanoid praying robot which is built by Iranian schoolteacher Akbar Rezaie, performs last Monday morning prayer in front of Alborz elementary school girls in the city of Varamin some 35 kilometres south of the capital Tehran, Iran. Rezaie, who has built a robot to show to children how to execute daily prayers, built the robot at home with basic tools and gave it the designation “Veldan”, a term mentioned in the Quran meaning: “Youth of Heaven.” By applying some mechanical modifications such as adding up two extra engines, Rezaie managed to let the robot perform praying movements, such as prostration, more easily.
