Indian students Are Making History, 18 Year Old Student Is Creating Robots

Meet 18-year-old Diwakar Vaish. This youngster apart from others his age is his undeniable talent in the still-nascent field of robotics in India. He has created four humanoid robots (designed, created and programmed by him) that possess much of the physical functionality a human body does, and one -- Robot Isotope -- that can even do the Bhangra. An admitted techno-freak, Diwakar spent much of his school years participating in tech competitions, and winning most. But what gave him the boost he needed was winning at Quanta, an international competition for robotics held in Lucknow in 2009, for which he created a race boat that beat out competition from 40 countries.

Less than a year since and Diwakar is all set to storm the FIRA (Federation of International Robosoccer Association) World Cup in Bangalore this September with three of his robots that have been designed to perform as defender, goalkeeper and attacker.

Here we speak to the young talent about his creations, how he got start…
