Let's take more work away from humans, increase the out of work force and put a bigger strain on the economy. Taxes will need to go up to replace the lost taxes paid by workers, unless the corporate taxes are increased to a level where the company still makes more money than they did with living workers and the governments get enough to take care of the people out of work. Capitalism at its finest. Companies make more, people get screwed.

i would've liked to see it a little more "in action", from what they show in the video, it's just hanging there suspended from the roof and gets to turn a wheel in the end, really slow. Even with all those fancy cameras attached, it seems like this robot has nothing on ASIMO....

Easier that way. The robot can work in environments built for humans without having to over-engineer a smaller robot to adapt while maintaining enough capacity for servos, batteries and the like. Unless you were talking about a larger robot which would have trouble 'fitting' where humans could.
