Team Kaist from South Korea has won the 2015 DARPA Robotics Challenge.
Its robot, Hubo, bested 22 other robots with its 44:28 time to take home the $2 million top prize.
Each robotic competitor got a one-hour window to drive a car, open doors, pull levers, turn knobs and saw holes in walls, mostly autonomously and completely untethered. (Video via DARPA)
