Russia has made a humanoid robot which can shoot a handgun from each arm.
FEDOR stands six foot tall, weighs between 106-160 kg depending on extra equipment – and can lift up to 20 kg of cargo.
Its creators claim that teaching them to shoot will help improve their motor skills and decision-making abilities.
Russia will also use the robot to fly a new unmanned spacecraft.
