SpaceFlights.us: Robots at NASA Posted in: Mission_Control | by Brian Taylor | 2013 Oct 29
Robots have always fueled the imagination. Most of the ones featured in the movies have some type of humanoid features, such as a 2 arm, 2 leg body. They look good in the movies but don't work so well in the untamed environment of outdoors, the desert or on the surface of Mars.
Here is one that NASA is working on that has 6 legs with a wheels for feet. It can really Walk and Roll. It's movement is more like a crab that can rollerskate.
This is the base section which you can add extra modules to for specific tasks.
