Interesting how the front joints are against what we're used to, is it just me or does it look like it's running backwards?

Check the video again. The belt is going left to right, the front end of the robot is the left side, so "knee" design is the same as what we are used to, its just one of those sneaky optical illusions that make it seem its running the other way.
