A schoolboy named Shuvo Karmakar from Agiljhara of Barishal has invented a robot named 'Rabin' which can speak both Bengali and English. Not only that, Robin can say the name of his creator. 

In addition, the robot can answer any question, including the name of its country, the Prime Minister, the President. He will able to inform about any fire incident to fire service. 

The inventor of this sophisticated robot is a Shuvo Karmakar, son of Santosh Karmakar and Dipti Karmakar couple of Goila Kalupara village of Agiljhara upazila of Barisal. Shuvo is an elder between two siblings of his parents. He is a student of Class-XI at the science group at Government Goila Model High School.

From a very early age, he participated in different science fairs. Not only did he take part, but he also won prizes in those competitions. After winning prizes in different competition he felt like he could make a robot. However, his robot will be slightly different from the traditional robot. 

And with that goal, he started to creat robots in May 2018, which ended in January this year. The robot is named after Robin. The name is named after an American cartoon show Super Hero. From then on, mass people came to know about Robin.

Shuvo Karmakar said I created the robot by taking information from the Internet and watching various videos from YouTube. I'm working on improving it now.

Robin does not have eyesight now, it will be able to see everyone in the future. Once Robin gets to introduce to someone it will able to tell his name in the future, and able to solve various problems by himself. The great thing is that my robot can learn a lot by itself. It does not require any coding, which means that some self-learning has been mastered.
