We all know humanoid robots are here to end us. With little we can do about it, we've been remarking on their physical designs: What will be the last thing we see, as they squeeze the life out of us?
Here are the designs we've seen previously:
Sanctuary AI Phoenix
Figure unnamed robot
Fourier Intelligence GR-1

But Chinese manufacturer Unitree's new H1 instead hides its ugly mechanicals with...clothing.
Like a child learning to draw humans for the first time, the company says they're still working on the fingers. You'll also note that they cleverly designed the face to be unpunchable:
Back to the clothing though, because that is bad news. Do you think this robot is capable of donning or doffing that shirt itself? No. You are going to be the one dressing that 'bot, like a valet.
And when the shirt gets dirty—and it will, with what I don't need to tell you—who do you think will be washing it, other 'bots? Think again.
