Robonaut

There are a lot of interesting bits to this story. Ya gotta love a robot that tweetw 'Hello, World'.

Robot Makes One Giant Leap for Twitter

Your best friend, your boss and your grandma are already on Twitter, and now the revolution is complete. A NASA crew member is now updating the universe, and it's not even human.

We're talking about a new robot slated to head to the International Space Station this fall. (It kind of looks like The Rocketeer on steroids.) Eventually, the robot could help perform tasks that are too dangerous for mankind. But right now, it's embarking into a brave new world of cyberspace.

Here's its first tweet:

"Hello World! My name is Robonaut 2 -- R2 for short."
