Eric, with the greatest respect, your flame is both rude and wrong.

There are numerous examples of highly advanced robots using MSRS from Grand Challenge entrants to humanoids.

I would agree with you that Matt Trossen also has some great ideas about robotics, but the two are far from exclusive - to call it the 'correct' way is to overstate his case far more than Matt might have done.

The field is relatively young and there is space for many competing and complementary approaches.
