I'm thinking of folks that just some kind of surgery where they cannot lift more than 5 pounds. Now I find myself sketching a 3D Printed attachment they can strap on to themselves so that they can at least be able to get a dinner plate without "hyper extending" themselves. What's really curious is how heavy something is when you attempt to pick it up.

How do you measure weight of something by picking it up with your hand? Damn, pencil just got off-shored. Now I've gotta wait.

A cute idea, that will take longer to create that the problem will exist. But lets look at some the requirements. With a 3 hour charge on some battery pack; change every 2 hours. The humanoid torque engineering is fairly stright forward. Self balancing. Record all movements, audio, and visual; straight forward. Be repairable, or parts replaceable. Use them initially as a type of drone.

"...the trust is left to the open source community, and is that really so different than leaving it to a corporation with closed source?"

Closed source works? They're the ones the bad guys make mega-bank on. Get real. So the holes are there, they get filled up in the FOSS world a lot faster than some other a== clown closed system, even factoring in that the close source community cares.

Kleeneness is next to Godelness.
