Ugh: The Most Anatomically Correct Humanoid Robot
This is a video of a humanoid that's being billed as the world's first anthropomimetic robot. WTF does anthropomimetic mean? Whatever you want it to, somebody just made that shit up. But they want it to mean that the robot has an accurate human skeleton and joints and can move like one. I...am not impressed. I mean, for a robot that's supposed to be so human-like WHY DOES IT ONLY HAVE ONE EYEBALL?! "Maybe it was designed by a cyclops." YES -- or a pirate.
Hit the jump for a video of the freaky-deaky in action.

Thanks to The Halfelven, Mike, tauntaun rodeo, Angel Mass and UKPete, who all want to see if it can bleed like a human. SAME.
