Russia to Send SAR-401 Android to the ISS

Russia has been showing off a new Android that it plans to send to live and work on the ISS. The robot looks a lot like a copy of the NASA and GM Robonaut android. Russia's android is called SAR-401 and is only a torso, head, and hands reports New Scientist . There is a key difference between the Russian robot and its American clone.

Russia designed its android to be able to operate outside. The idea is that SAR-401 could be operated remotely from inside the ISS allowing the astronauts to remain inside rather than having to take a spacewalk. I'd wager astronauts on the ISS really look forward to those space walks.

In the photo, the man in the background wearing the backpack is controlling the robot. SAR-401 appears to have highly articulated hands. Japan also has a robot living on the ISS, but it is much smaller than the Russian and American counterparts are.
