Is it me, or doesn't this think look like the little training droid that was shooting at Luke Skywalker when he was learning to feel the force?
NASA could have created this demonic space droid to encourage Congress to authorize more funding for their Martian program. Instead, they're going to waste its manifold talents and set it to orbit around various space shuttles and stations and inspect for damage. It has very few accouterments but it would be so cool if it had like a welding thing or something in it. To dream...
