    Vyommitra is a half-humanoid developed by the ISRO. She can talk and mimic other humans. She can monitor pre-module parameters, alert and perform support live operations, she can also mimic activities like switch panel operations. She can converse, recognize and also respond to queries.

    She was unveiled by the Indian space agency at an event in Bengaluru where she greeted reporters.

    According to ISRO, Vyommitra is a half humanoid as she does not have legs. She can only bend sidewards and forward.
