Robotics For Kids — NASA Robot

Meet NASA Superhero Robot Valkyrie

Valkyrie is a new NASA robot that looks like Ironman! Valkyrie will join the family of NASA space robots along with Robonaut & the Mars rover! In the future, NASA hopes to send this battery-powered humanoid robot to Mars or to other places that are too dangerous for humans. Val is very tall at 6' 2" & weighs 180 lbs. He is covered in foam & fabric to protect him when he falls.  He is built in a way that his arms & legs can easily be replaced with just a few bolts. He has a LOT of sensors like cameras all over his body.  

Check out this video to see Valkyrie in action:
