Check out the NASA Robonaut 2 video after the jump.
Robonaut 2 (R2) is a state of the art highly dexterous anthropomorphic robot. Like its predecessor Robonaut 1 (R1), R2 is capable of handling a wide range of EVA tools and interfaces, but R2 is a significant advancement over its predecessor.
R2 is capable of speeds more than four times faster than R1, is more compact, is more dexterous, and includes a deeper and wider range of sensing.
NASA Robonaut 2 is going into orbit on the ISS to help NASA obtain a more comprehensive knowledge of human and robotic interaction.
