Humor aside, the new DURUS robot that mimics human walking characteristics prompts the question: what is so cool about biped mobility anyway? We humans tend to anthropomorphize everything, and that isn't necessarily a good thing. Why not create robots that use technology to ambulate better than humans? In fact, our efforts would be better spent increasing the capability of computers so that they enhance real humans. I prefer the science that is trying to recreate the human brain function. That is the real marvel. Biped mobility is just a physical effort to get our mammal species down the road. The invention of the wheel made that much more efficient.
