That's what I thought to! To bad they haven't made legs for that yet. Here is some thing not as impresive but still cool. http://www.robomotio.com/humanoidp4.php

Well, It would look scary if you woke up during the night and it was just standing there, staring at you! or if it's face was only centermetres away from your face when you woke up. Or if you were casually walking down the street and you turned a corner and there it was walking towards you! Or if you were in a car and suddenly the driver hit it and it went flying into you!    Now that would be scary!      ;D

One of my coworkers has banned me from sending her vids of any robots that look even remotely alive . . . she gets too weirded out by it . . . she had a huge empathetic emotional response when they kicked BigDog, too . . . :-X

pretty good design. does it have vocal chords or do you talk in it and the robots face change depending on the tone. Also they really need to work on the lips

It's got a "What are you doing Dave?" feel to it.

I like Mitzy. I was a little creeped out too, but she's not all that bad of a mechanical creature. Cute even.

Perhaps they can remodel it and give it a less intimidating face, so others won't be so freaked out.
