The Mars Curiosity Rover is a car-sized (10 ft long, 9 ft wide, 7 ft tall) robot made by NASA. It has been made to explore Mars for evidence of life and the conditions that would make life possible (like the presence of liquid water). The robot is equipped with cameras on all sides, can grab rocks and place them inside the rover, and can actually send video footage back to Earth. Its launch is scheduled for November or December of this year.
I find this video to be a nice intoduction to the Curiousity Rover, including the new and unique additions and differences from earlier rovers:
