First Robot to Astronaut Handshake On-Orbit



Firm handshake between International Space Station's Robonaut 2 and the ISS commander. "Firm handshake," he reports. Well, it's not an IRobot sort of thing, but it's a start. Glad to see R2 beginning to work. There is a much longer version of this that is worth seeing as it gives you the hopes and dreams for R2's future use on the space station. You can view this longer video at: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iK8HkV0Ge5Y There may even be some artificial intelligence in R2's future.
