The Darwin-OP (Dynamic Anthropomorpic Robot with Intelligence, Open Platform) robot is the latest of a series of robots developed by Virginia Tech's Robotics & Mechanisms Laboratory (RoMeLa) since 2004. Aimed at research labs and universities doing robotics research, the robot has been released as a fully open source hardware and software platform.

That is so incredibly cool. I love seeing it get up, walk to the ball, and kick it. The progress made in "AI" to get it to do that is astounding.
