Any Interest in Humanoid robots?

I have always been interested in robots since I was a young kid and saw Star Wars for the first time. I want to my first Robogames in 2005. I competed every year until 2018 when it was canceled. I have always been surprised by the lack of interest in the Kansas City area in regards to robots. I am not sure why that is? Below is my latest unboxing video of a very cool humaniod robot by Robosen.
