Genoa: An Italian company has developed a robot called 'iCub' that can fly like the famous superhero 'Iron Man' and can also be used in rescue operations.

According to the details, this invention was made by the engineers of IIT (Italian Institute of Technology) based in Genoa after 15 years of hard work.

It is only 3.4 feet high and has small jet engines mounted on both arms to help it fly and fly to its destination when needed.

Using a special kind of algorithm, it has been enabled to maintain complete balance in all stages of flight.

It has a baby-like face and can walk on two foots in addition to all four arms and legs.

The palms of the I-Cub's hands are made of a layer of soft material so that when it catches something, it does not break with the force of its hands.

It is also equipped with sensors to locate people buried in the rubble after an accident, which can detect a person at a considerable depth.

He also has powerful cameras in his eyes that allow him to see far and wide.

During the operation it is in constant radio contact with its operator who monitors it, so that its direction and speed etc. can be changed if required.

The IIT says that there are about 300 natural disasters and disasters in the world every year which take 90,000 lives and affect 160 million people. Therefore, it is very important to develop the field of robotics in this regard.
