Robonaut – NASA’s android reaches the International Space Station

I mentioned Robonaut in a previous post about how robots have suddenly becoming awesome, like they were supposed to back in the year 2000.

He’s a humanoid robot who’s designed to carry out maintenance, lab work and other routine tasks on the International Space Station. Although I’m sure he’ll soon assume dominance and do creepy things like watch the astronauts sleep. Anyway, he’s arrived in space now. In this video he’s ‘unboxed’ and floats around the space station a bit. Not sure if he’s been turned on yet.

He looks awesome, except he doesn’t have any legs. Legs aren’t that important in space. Its all pretty futuristic though, human-like robots on space stations…. in space.

PS. Check out the crazy weightless hair and the ‘comedy’.
