Back to the drawing board, as they say.
In better robotics news, Toyota has developed a humanoid robot, which is to be sold as a personal assistant, particularly to elderly and disabled persons. "Asimo" can dance, recognize familiar faces (which is unbelievably cool and if anyone has access to a description of how this feat is accomplished, please send it to me), and answer simple questions.
This guy is, I assume, named after Asimov, the writer. I wonder if it follows his Three Laws??
