Robonaut2 can use the same tools as humans, which allows it to work safely alongside humans on Earth and in space.
Too bad there is no video with this. It would be great fun to watch and could we get a list of abilities or a web site where we can obtain more information. NASA (and GM) is still relevant in the pursuit of new technology.
NASA has a website on R2 with a video that further describes it's functions and abilities.

R2?? Where is George at to sue them and show is disgust. Or at least put a Lucas Film Ltc. logo on it! I like how the robots keep getting smaller to be near a human size. However, I wonder if this design is so small because it has no way to move around.
