These sorts of robot are still too expensive, and rely upon heavy duty computing power. Even if they are able to carry out some useful tasks the cost of using a robot like this is still far higher than the equivalent cost of employing a human.
I think something more like a big version of Robosapien V2 would be more practical and affordable, especially if it could be wirelessly teleoperated.
Its very impressive but still needs a little bit of work. Looking at that video though, I'm sure it wont be long until complex tasks like that will be performed by humanoid robots. Like motters said, they are expensive and I can visualise something like oversized lower cost robots like robosapiens doing EOD work or something like that.
