NASA’S ‘Iron Man’ Like robot “Valkyrie” to be used to explore Mars | Fox News


\”We really wanted to design the appearance of this robot to be one that when you saw it you’d say ‘wow, that’s awesome’\”, said NASA JSC\’s Dexterous Robotics Lab Project leader Nicolaus Radford.

Valkyrie’s left and right arms are interchangeable, so they can be quickly switched out or replaced in just a few minutes if damaged.

The robot is also covered in soft cloth, resembling clothes, which act as protection and also make it more appealing to human coworkers.

\”We take our soft goods very seriously,” Mr Radford told IEEE. \”Our robot is soft. If you brush against it while you’re working, you don’t want to feel this cold, hard metal. You want it to feel natural, like you’re working next to another human being. The soft goods, the clothes we put on the robot, give it that feel, that appearance of being more comfortable to be near.\”
