Traction-driven robotic devices will continue to be more useful in the short term, but Angle may want to exercise some caution on his dismissive approach to Japanese humanoids. Doesnt he know that as the U.S. Department of Defense aims to develop its dream of robotic military supremacy, it also continues to cherish the dream of a robot soldier that looks, thinks and fights like a soldier? In fact, I can imagine a scenario in the not-too-distant future when the Pentagon will start taking serious leads from Japans top humanoid robotics research institutes, such as Honda and the National Institute of Advanced Industrial Science and Technology. There is little doubt that for all around utility, aesthetics, and cognitive abilities, the future belongs to the ASIMOs of the robotic world.
