0 Boston Dynamics PETMAN

PETMAN is an anthropomorphic robot developed by Boston Dynamics for testing special clothing used by the US Army. PETMAN balances itself as it walks, squats and does simple calisthenics. PETMAN simulates human physiology by controlling temperature, humidity and sweating inside the clothing to provide realistic test conditions. PETMAN development is lead by Boston Dynamics, working in partnership with Measurement Technologies Northwest, Oak Ridge National Lab and MRIGlobal. The work is being done for the DoD CBDP.

I'm thinking that anything that's "openly publicised" is not anywhere near the technology these companies
"really have"....history tells us that much.
It's more of a "psychological beatdown" a "wow look at that" moment, then when the really futuristic stuff without all the power leads and cables is's not such a hit on the senses...and it's "oh we seen that before"
