If you want to look at just how far the human race has come in terms of technological prowess, these NASA robots are a great place to start. NASA has unsurprisingly been at the forefront of technological development ever since its inception, and its scientists have come up with a ridiculous roster of robots that can do everything from surgical interventions to engineering projects.
These NASA robots aren't merely works of technological prowess, because developing machines like these also takes a great deal of creative genius and out-of-the-box thinking. These NASA robots are definitely not the product of safe, conservative thought processes.
What's great about these NASA robots is that while they do have incredible space applications, the technology that they are based on often ends up having useful applications closer to home.
