Surena, Iran’s Asimo-Like Humanoid, Performs Strange Dance On Television

The last time we saw Surena-2 (aka Sorina-2), it was hanging out with Mahmoud Ahmedinejad in its first public appearance last month. Now it has made its debut on television.

In the somewhat mystifying clip below, it bops past silent humans seated at brightly lit podiums, demonstrating its ability to walk, and to balance on one leg.
