I somehow missed this.

Until now.


R2 with no D2. Humanoid, will work alongside astronauts. Limited, but considerably better than previous humanoid robots.

And think about this. One of the most difficult things to get a robot to do is walk. This one isn't going to have to. Future models may be programmed to handle the most dangerous EVAs.

Question: I wonder how long before R2 becomes R. Something. Humans will not be able to resist naming this guy.

I suggest Sammy. Or maybe Isaac...
