Robonaut 2

Soon, very soon, Discovery will launch (if all goes well) and R2 will become part of the ISS team. The first experiments are legless. Later on, there are plans for that to change. Also, early experiments will have R2 working on a platform within the station. Later challenges will involve work in space with maintenance tasks on the ISS exterior. As for the rest, time (and Congressional funding) will tell.
