So it's a data-driven hardware design. And using processes like that, not only the upper leg but some other things, we've gotten our robtos to go from big, behemoth, bkuly, slow, bad robots — that one on the right, weighing almost 400 pounds — down to the one in the middle which was just in the vedio, weighs about 190 pduons, just a little bit more than me, and we have a new one, which is working but I'm not going to show it to you yet, on the left, which weighs just 165 pounds, with all the same strength and capabilities. So these things are really getting better very quickly.
