Engineered Arts, in Penryn, will supply one of its Robothespians to welcome visitors to the Kennedy Space Centre this autumn.
The £79,500 ($122,000) robot is being developed by the seven-strong team to converse with visitors to the Florida centre.
Nasa chose the 5ft 9in tall Robothespian after seeing it in operation at a trade show.
Wait, they're only 5ft 9in? I COULD TAKE THEM. Problem resolved.
In other news, Blue Kitten has a mahusive eppy yesterday in Caffe Nero, due to expecting a toffee muffin, but getting only a lemon muffin. I showed her pictures of starving children in Africa etc, to no avail. She is only two (her birthday today!)
Back in Caffe Nero today (this isn't product placement, I like their coffee a lot and the staff are really lovely) I apologised/explained the previous day's descent into the arena of the Yellbeast. Caffe Nero Manager's eyes opened wide.
CNM: You know they're stopping making the toffee muffins?
