DARPA Officials Aiming for More Efficient Robots
“Humans and animals have evolved to consumer energy very efficienty,” DARPA officials said in a July 3 statement. “Bones, muscles and tendons work together for propulsion using as little energy as possible. If robotic actuation can be made to approach the efficiency of human and animal actuation, the range of practical robotic applications will greatly increase and robot design will be less limited by power plant considerations.”

Can't they just use humans?

Pretty soon they'll develop robots that can feed themselves.
