In the DARPA Robotics Challenge the selected teams have to develop an autonomous robot capable to get into a car, drive it to a disaster site and perform hazardous activities.
While this prototype is the only one that that doesn't have a humanoid shape and it's quite creepy since it does not have a head, it seems that its three fingered limbs are better fitted for some of the difficult tasks required by the DARPA challenge.
