I don't think we really know how we think and act. Also, our sensors are hardly high precision.
Robocup results are anthropomorphic by design but the people involved quickly realize they have a bunch of wires that break and boards that burn in their hands; not very human of the robots. In the end - in Robocup they say 2050 - we will not have a replica of human perception. My guess is we will have a cyborg with her own way of perception and that perception may not be high-precision at all. Our is not and works pretty well most of the time (by human standards).
In short, having $70K funding and a 6-episode series out there seems better than having an idea in your head. Still, the idea must be worth something to succeed anywhere.
