I don't care about the robot but I'm intrigued with the servomotor leg mechanisms. I've often wondered if an exoskeletal structure (AKA leg brace) powered by mechanisms like this could afford a partially paralyzed person the ability to walk.

Would hate the idea of giving up first tracks to that thing, but don't want to be down hill from it. 

It could become a terminator.
