    But try to think of something more creative than "Space Droid."

    NASA has a new "free-flying robot" they'll be sending up to help out the International Space Station crew in 2017. But let's be honest: "free-flying robot" is kind of a mouthful. That's why the space agency wants help creating a name for the little guy, as well as a new mission patch design!

  3. Become One With the Machines Using New Robotic Fabric That Augments the Human Body

    If you can't beat them, join them.

    Researchers have created a new robot "skin" in the form of robotic fabric that can be worn to improve the function of the human body.

  6. Tempting Fate: MIT’s Robot Cheetah Can Now Run Without Cables, Leashes, Fatigue, or Mercy

    You can run, but you can't hide. Nope, you're just doomed.

    Robots do amazing things for us. They take boring repetitive jobs, move heavy objects, and even snark at each other on cellphone commercials. They also do horrifying things like laser our limbs off before we can even feel it and chase us down like we're antelope on the African plains, and MIT has now enabled their Cheetah-inspired, four-legged robot to run and leap all on its own. When the Terminator comes for you, it'll need your clothes and your boots, but not your motorcycle.
