I'm interested to see how this develops. If this is a base model other companies can freely acquire with no license costs or restrictions, then it might quickly expand the range of humanoid robots available.

I'm expecting China to take the lead in manufacturing "cheap" humanoid robots, and exporting them. There are demos of humanoid robots training themselves to do simple household tasks. How soon before you can buy a Humanoid Robot Maid in the shops?

Let's hope the license forces the return of any advancements and improvements back to the project, and not keep it for themselves as proprietary.

It doesn't look like it's open source, just compatible with open source software.

They say it has 6 axis per leg and 3 axis per arm .. I'd rather it have 4 axis per leg and 5 axis per arm.
But it's very promising and most likely will be the first affordable humanoid robot.
