Robots--They Have A Long Way to Go

The above video describes the walking action of "Strider", a three-legged robot of unique design. High scores for innovation.

This wall-climbing robot may suggest more practical, scaled-down designs.

"Scarab" is a lunar prospector robot, with some unique characteristics making it a better prospector.

This article suggests that Japanese old-timers are not interested in interaction with the clutzy kludgy robots that researchers have been sending them. Is it possible that many robotics researchers lack the real-world life perspective necessary to avoid patronizing the old folks. Probably.

If one were to watch IRobot, then take a look at the state of the art in robotics research, it would be obvious that a robot gap exists between the movies and the real world.
