QA, Dexter & Monty

anybots presented their telepresence robot prototype QA at CES, which is quite humanoidly shaped, except navigating smoothly on Segway-type lower extremeties (and lacking arms).
On their web-page anybots present two more robots in development which arose my interest -
Dexter, a bi-ped with the ability to jump and run.
And Monty, a potential cocktial-robot, which "has one fully articulated hand (driven by 18 motors) and one gripper, and balances on two wheels".

Best part: Monty is already being trained in dish-washing, well, at least in putting dishes in the washer.
