I wonder how much it would cost to actually buy one now that they're being produce. Thousands, tens of thousands, or hundreds of thousands?

I read somewhere it willl be "somewhere in the 10,000-100,000 range" which is not very precise. Also it was just a guy on the internet though so not sure how valid that is. 

 

Looking at the robot I'm not sure what sort of industrial/commercial applications it could have (even if it worked generally as well as it does in the scripted demos they show) I guess it could replace bomb disposal robots which cost in that range I think? It would be much faster and that steady hand thing would be useful.
