The Associated Press: Robot Getting Eyes, Tools in Spacewalk
CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — Spacewalking astronauts stepped outside Monday night to give the space station’s new robot some eyes and a set of tools. It was the third spacewalk of shuttle Endeavour’s visit to the station, each one aimed at putting together Dextre, the giant robot.
The last time astronauts floated out, Dextre got arms. This time, the robot was getting a tool belt and two cameras that will serve as eyes — interestingly, at waist level.

My only advice…don’t piss off the giant orbiting robot.
