Canadarm2 will attach the First Expandable Module to the ISS

2016-04-08 - The Bigelow Expandable Activity Module (BEAM) will be launched to the ISS aboard a SpaceX Dragon cargo spacecraft on April 8, 2016. Once it is attached to the International Space Station by Canadarm2, BEAM will expand in volume, enabling crew members to enter it to conduct periodic testing during a two-year period.

If successful, this expandable technology could increase habitable area and lower costs for future space exploration missions.
