    Wouldnt the cost of a proper humanoid robot be far more than the $2million prise?

    Yes it would they are trying to get something cheap. And it will be used for combat if someone makes it. $2million is nothing but a piss in the ocean for something like that.

    They obviously don't watch alot of movies. Robo Soldiers always end badly.

    $2 million is a bit low for something that would probably change the way we live our lives, isn't it? I'd expect it to be more in line with $2 billion, if that little.

    Its a prize for the first person to do it. I doubt they would expect you to hand over your blueprints for that amount.

    ^^^ The DoD would then give the company/person/machine a contract of alot more units and there is where the money lies.

    But, I just don't get it. Why have the $2 million prize at all? Anyone who has the money to design a fully functional humanoid robot that meets the military's demands would consider that 2 million a drop in the ocean anyway.

    The US are a bit late to the party. Japan has probably had a cyborg army in its basement for years.
