    I think it's creepy.
    I don't care how helpful this technology is, maybe these robots could help in medicine or whatever but just making them immitate animals is CREEPY!!!! Someday they might just eat all of us. Well, not eat us , but do something nasty to humanity.

    I could imagine a small group of these being released into a building and performing a swift sweep for any explosives and managing to have enough "intelligence" to know how to disable them before the human team would move in.
    This is probably the best suggestion so far.

    Then again, this technology might allow a whole new level of potential weirdness for the "Real Doll" industry. Never have to leave the house again...

    With the proper Pressure sensors in the toes and good AI programming, it would make the perfect little scout for any uneven surface. The sand dunes of mars, the craters of the moon, or the volcanic vents under the ocean.
    One of the little tracked rovers we sent to mars very nearly got stuck in the sand. I bet the little spider here would have just kept going, and going...

    Crawling in to do recon of a combat or hostage situation.

    Nature has given billions of years to finding what works best, and she own the patent on this idea long before even trilobites were in the sea.

    Useful little bugger. I would use a giant version of that thing as a bill collector. If it doesn't share the shit out of your ill paying debtors I don't think you'll be getting your money back.
