Japan's leading humanoid is rumored to have cost $300 million and 100 worker-years.
I still see Popular Science has a bias towards other USA based humanoid robot projects by not including my ATOM-7xp humanoid in there photo gallery or article of which they know about. The ATOM-7xp will be the most humanoid robot in the USA an 8 year project, I guess with Popular Science magazine the little robot builder guy don't need to apply.
I agree. Instead of giving the "Beltway Bandits" most of the research $$, the Government should be supporting engineering students and their mentor Professors and serious robot builders! Our research priorities in the US are made by a bunch of out of touch Government Bureaucrats who have a hard time finding their desks! It has been this way the last 50 years.
