Get your own simulated Robonaut

Now you can have your very own Robonaut to work with, just like the astronauts aboard the International Space Station.

If you are like me, you may only be able to simulate being an astronaut, so it seems appropriate to work with a simulated Robotnaut. The simulation works in Gazebo and can be programmed using ROS.

Now someone needs to turn this into a video game where NASA calls you up for the space program if you get a high enough score. On the other hand, perhaps it is video game and the score is determined by number of lines of code you write.

Either way, thanks to NASA, GM and the Robonaut team for making this available.
