It's very impressive seeing it get over those obstacles at that speed with no hassle.

Getting over the obstacles? No hassle? Did you not see its tether go taught? Without that tether it would have fallen asimo over tit.

However, more importantly, it's a planar biped.

Planar bipeds are not interesting. Everyone in the robots community, apart from students who work on planar bipeds, will be cringing at this "advance". The little robot in the icon at the corner of the summary is more interesting, from a robotics perspective.

Uh, the summary photo/icon is the same velociraptor robot. What are you talking about?
