    A remarkable technical feat? Yeah sure, but keep in mind that this thing can't walk, it's movements are still quite unnatural, and it has no artificial intelligence.

    These type of robots have a LONG way to go before they truly start to resemble humans in any sort of meaningful way.
    I think a LONG way to go is far too ... long. We can now put 3,000x the memory of a 60s NASA hard drive on a damn microchip... With that said, I wouldn't be surprised if the first generation of household androids roll out within the next 10 years. This is a far cry from Asumo, however he proved that walking robots could be a reality. How long until some kid at Google figures out how to put all of these technologies together? I wouldn't say a long time.
    I refuse to accept the view that mankind is so tragically bound to the starless midnight of racism and war that the bright daybreak of peace and brotherhood can never become a reality. - MLK

    Animatronics have been around for a long time. Hell, just pay a visit to Disney World and go on the Pirates of the Caribbean ride. This is simply a fancier version of an old technology.

    I guess what I'm not really seeing is where there has been a big technical leap with this robot.

    I think you should look at it in terms of the hundreds of technologies existing around these inventions. We now have software which can recognize human needs. We have software that can read questions and answer correctly. We have robots that can walk without human intervention. We have robots that can mimic animal movement. We have hydrophobic tissue. We have software capable of analyzing movement and recognizing human faces. How long until someone puts a few of these together and creates a robot that resembles a human? I mean, yeah it's futuristic in theory but I don't think it's as far as you may think. There are probably 20-30 people in the world today who could make it happen and I think they will within the next 10-20 years. That's not a long time considering electricity was only really harnessed on an industrial level about 100 years ago.
