Gone are the days when Simon merely told you to touch your toes. The International Space Station's very own voice activated robot, dubbed 'CIMON' (pronounced "Simon"), is a ball-shaped robot that provides voice instructions and videos to help astronauts make repairs. We're impressed by the controls needed to maneuver CIMON precisely in zero-G, and the winking is a cute feature. The latter may not be critical for giving astronauts instructions, but is undoubtedly essential for flirting with extraterrestrials. PS. Josh attributes his preternatural ability to generate off-the-cuff space gibberish (this title, for example) to "many hours of practice with Space Team."
