GM & NASA Team Up: The Result – The Robonaut!

When GM and NASA team up, only good things can happen.

Engineers from GM and NASA have been working together through the Space Act Agreement at the Johnson Space Center to build the new Robonaut (Robonaut2) or R2 for short. R2 is a humanoid robot that is designed to help astronauts during dangerous space missions, and can also help GM with safety in their plants.

R2 is a faster, more dexterous and more technologically advanced robot. This new generation robot can use its hands to do work beyond the scope of prior humanoid machines. R2 can work safely alongside people, a necessity both on Earth and in space.

You can see a video on the partnership here with some nice shots of R2.

Well this sounds like one advanced robot! I guess all we have to worry about now is R2 getting a little too smart and getting some bad ideas in its head…
