Recognize this robot?

It is of course the Reem B Robot, developed by Abu Dhabi-based Pal Technology, and first unveiled in Abu Dhabi in June. Its on show at IDF, mainly on the account of the fact that its got an Intel Core 2 Duo processor running a number of functions.

There's no official news updates on Reem B at the show, but the team did tell me that they are now looking at developing two different versions of the robot. The first version will be more of a concept bot, with development focused on getting Reem B's legs to move faster, possibly even up to running pace sometime in the future, although the team acknowledge that won't be an easy or quick target to meet.

The second model will replace the legs with wheels, with the intention of creating a working robot for service use, presumably to help Pal to create a commercially available product more quickly than if they relied just on tricky walking technology.
