We have seen many robots and most of them barely walk straight. Now, Boston Dynamics (who also brings you BigDog) has now develop a human-like robot (minus the head) that can walk, squat, perform push-ups with human-like actions. Watch the video after the break.
According to Boston Dynamics, PETMAN is supposed to be used for testing out Chemical protection clothing.
PETMAN is an anthropomorphic robot for testing chemical protection clothing used by the US Army. Unlike previous suit testers, which had to be supported mechanically and had a limited repertoire of motion, PETMAN will balance itself and move freely; walking, crawling and doing a variety of suit-stressing calisthenics during exposure to chemical warfare agents. PETMAN will also simulate human physiology within the protective suit by controlling temperature, humidity and sweating when necessary, all to provide realistic test conditions.
Here is the video. Amazing, right?
