Robot-Cub -- Open Source Humanoid Robot

Here is a humanoid (walking, generally human-shaped) robot developed in Europe.

The team has posted their designs as an open-source project. The cost to build one is reportedly about 200,000 pounds (UK) which would translate into, let's say, a half-million dollars US.
Nice product for researchers, but at the high cost such humanoids invariably carry, probably not a lot of practical applications.
