Call it one giant leap for robot kind: A small talking robot launched into space aboard a Japanese cargo ship Saturday (Aug. 3) to keep astronauts company on the International Space Station. - See more at: http://www.space.com/22235-japan-launches-talking-space-robot-astronaut.html#sthash.Cksl6xwt.dpuf
This is a really cool development for space exploration. Now astronaughts can have someone to speak to that isn't human to confide in to find that secret place that everyone has since we were children. We have all had that secret special little friend. Some though have several special little friends.'
Really cool design.
I can't wait to see it used to explore the Moon deep in the craters.
