I think it's hilarious that the stair climbing robot is wearing knee pads.

I wonder how much it costs them to make these prototypes so they can be entered to earn a $2 million prize. They probably have more than that invested so far but that's just a guess.

Latest comment: I agree they have a lot more than that invested. I don't think they are banking on a $2 mil. prize, I think they are banking on commercial development, and an extensive product line, and multi-billions in profits.
