Robonaut Got Legs...

Robonaut hasn't had any legs since he first joined the crews aboard the ISS. That is about to change however as a brand new pair of gams are aboard the next Dragon supply mission.

That doesn't mean that Rob will be cutting a rug with the addition of  the lower extremities which are better suited for a weightless environment.   The first thing you notice is the legs have an additional joint below the knee allowing the legs to bend in some decidedly non human positions.
