ALBAWABA - Meet Sara, a robot made in Saudi Arabia, assembled in the shape of a woman donning the hijab, or Muslim headscarf, and speaking in colloquial Saudi dialect. 

Sara is a homegrown machine on display at the Saudi Digital Pavilion as part of LEAP 2023, an international technical conference at the Riyadh Exhibition and Convention Center, which runs through Feb. 9.

Recently, the robot was manufactured in collaboration between Saudi Digital and the Qss Company.

It can communicate with visitors of the exhibition, greet and interact with them, perform popular dances and respond to inquiries, a Saudi Press Agency reported.

The robot has an AI camera, which recognizes the distance of people in front of it.
