Really a great experience and thanks again for sharing. Apart from the Robonauts I like the idea of the robotic gloves a lot!! Why is the head of the Robonauts or the spider legs are having golden colour? I see a lot is the parts in the photos to have golden colour...any special reason that is made for? Any special alloy is used to make those part for special reasons?

Looks to me like NASA is creating "the Borg." I would think one really good application for the completely robotic Borg is to go to the first few missions to Mars, unaccompanied by humans. The disconcerting spider legs might be a good mode for locomotion on Mars.

Then again, if Martians see such monsters coming from Earth, they may object to our ever being there. Esthetics matter, even to extraterrestrials, I'm convinced. First impressions are very important!
