NASA's Robonaut 2 Makes Television DebutFebruary 6, 2011 0 Comments
NASA and GM will reveal their new humanoid "Robonaut 2" on television during a GM commercial spot. Robonaut 2 will work alongside both astronauts and car assembly line workers. The new robot works 4 times as fast as its predecessor and boasts fully-functional hands. Robonaut 2 will be responsible for all the most dangerous "poor sucker" jobs out in NASA and the car industry.
Don't these guys know that by positioning robots all over the manufacturing industry, they're just making it easier for Skynet to take over?
It's funny how these humanoid robots often evoke an emotional response. Just look at this guy below. The instant I saw this picture, my automatic thought was, "Seems like a cool guy."
