A Greek student now belongs to a very small group of scientists around the world.

Dimitris Hatzis, a fifteen year old student living in Kavala, located in northern Greece has created a life sized robot humanoid from a 3D printer, ANA-MPA reports.

The student’s creation is part of the “InMoov” project, an open source platform that is centred around the development of a life sized robot humanoid from a 3D printer. Those working on their project can get instructions from the platform and also share their progress with other people who are attempting to do the same thing.

Hatzis, who was able to construct the robot after a year of daily work, is now one of the six people in the world who have been able to complete the task. The other five include the original designer of the robot, Frenchman Gael Langevin, two Russians an Italian and a German creator. Hatzis is also the youngest one of this group.

The Greek student told ANA-MPA that he has been in contact with the other scientists, which he regards as his peers. He further noted that each scientist contributes something new to the development of this project, which is constantly developing.


  1. Its nice to see someone so young trying to improve their life through their own intellect and effort. The fifty percent of Greeks who now shamelessly vote for communists in the vain hopes for government handouts could learn a lot from this young man.

  2. I am friend of his father ….prof of Polytechnic University …. Guess what? His father is a communist and this young man has even more radical ideas than his father. IN GENERAL you brainless commenter do not merge political beliefs with science and do not draw conclusions which fit your low functioning brain. Sometimes a simple well done is far better than masking the achievements of others with our own personal preoccupations , prejudices, and beliefs.

  3. If you, or the leftist that keeps deleting my posts but leaving your personal attacks, support communists after 100 million dead due in the 20th century, you are even worse then those communists. At least the communists in the 20th century had an excuse of ignorance. They didn’t know the horrors their social experiment would lead to. You have no excuses.

  4. Why, you really say Phil is wrong? He does not, in any way, relate the young boy to the majority of the Greek people. Do not be so sentimental about people talking for us Greeks. It is TRUE that MOST of the Greeks are waiting on governmental handouts. If you indeed value knowledge and education then you must admit that people of Greece have long denied it. They became tolerant to chicken-brained losers who became their leaders only for the smell of money. We must face ourselves and understand where we have failed. Our forefathers warned us but we were too busy watching tv commercials to listen…

    “The form of the monster is repulsive. But when the face of the monster
    ceases to frighten us, then we must be afraid … because that means
    that we have begun to resemble it. Undoubtedly we (long) began to tolerate. And tolerance, multiplies animals in public life, strengthens and helps us accurately compose the form of the monster, it gets in charge, it controls and governs us.”

  5. Moreover, yes, the Greek people has a lot to learn from Dimitris. There are many ‘Dimitris’ among us you must know and it is about time we focus on those people if we want to continue to bear the name ‘Greeks’.

  6. I obviously don’t know the child so it is possible I am mistaken. I make the assumption because it is extremely rare to see a communist achieve anything other than a degree in something in a study that beyond words. That said, if the father is a communist and the child has been indoctrinated into his communist cult almost certainty he will never amount to anything beyond working for the government like his communist father. You can count the number of great original communist scientific thinkers in one hand.

  7. Sorry Phil but there is not 50% that voted for communism.
    If you look carefully to the election results i think you will be amazed to
    check on the percentage of people voting.
    And you can easily figure out that this small percentage that did go to the election
    booth, did not drop a clear vote because common both big parties (ND-PASOK) lost their voters and became obsolete. These voters are not communists and half of SYRIZA are old politicians who left from PASOK and other non-left parties.
    Almost 50% of Greek voters did not even vote because they do not support the system and the parties.

  8. Sorry. Syriza is run by a communist – ergo It counts as communist party. Period.

    Imagine if ND had selected Michaloliakos as leader but claimed it wasnt’ facist. You very well know all the leftist whiling Orwillian weasels would have been ranting “fascism”. Same rule applies here.

    Those that vote for Syriza should ALL be classes as communist sympathizers. Their actions decide not their narratives. Either stop voting for a communist or get called out for it.
