CIMON, The Space Basketball AI Assistant

Turns out that HAL 9000 is actually a cross between Wilson from "Castaway" (2000) and GERTY from "Moon" (2009). CIMON is a basketball- sized device with a "smiley face" screen that can float around with astronauts in space and act as a sort of suped-up Siri.

CIMON is on it's way to the ISS now.
