    Agreed . Sure it can run and jump, but no where near as agile as a human. It would be so easy to knock it over...not to mention a few falls and the thing is toast...

    Don't even get me started about the power supply...haha

    The power supply is the biggest limitation.

    All of these things are improving constantly.

    Yes they are but unless they pop a nuclear reactor into one they will never have enough power capacity to do crazy stuff. You also have to think about the dangers of having extremely energy dense batteries. If you think lithium batteries make a good bang just wait until they crank up the density of energy..haha. booooom!

    If you look up different chemicals and batteries and you see the difference and energy density it's crazy.
