Meet NASA’s 6 Foot Tall Humanoid Robot


The Pentagon’s Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency is always unveiling new gizmos and gadgets, but the latest effort from DARPA is something that seems more out of a sci-fi movie than a science lab. Meet Nasa’s first ever 6 foot tall Humanoid Robot names ”Valkyrie” measuring in at around 6’2” and around 275 lbs (125 kg; 1.9m). The Valkyrie is a joint effort being undertaken by NASA and scientists at the University of Texas and Texas A&M University that will participate in a trial run later this month.  NASA scientists have been secretly at work for a year on this project. Valkyrie has the ability to walk, pick up objects and use tools. Valkyrie has 44 axes of movement and interchangeable arms.
