General Motors is not going to be left out of the loop when it comes to the creation of next gen robots. GM and NASA have teamed up, and with a little inspiration from Daft Punk, have engaged in the production of a “Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger” robot cleverly dubbed: Robonaut2 - or - R2 (without the D2).

GM and NASA's plans for the technologically advanced next gen Robonaut2 include working together with humans in a harmonious capacity.

Implications - This unstoppable business partnership is a step into the future of highly advanced robots that will work harmoniously with humors to create a more efficient, high quality manufacturing environment that is both competitive and cooperative. The possibilities are limitless, as GM and NASA explore robotics further.
