Humanoid Robots Are Closer Than You Think [VIDEO]
While the thought of your own personal robot slave may sound cool, don't forget the message of the Terminator movies...Arnold Swarzenegger makes more money per word than we'll make in our lifetime! Well, I'm sure there was another message there, but you get the point. The following description is stolen from the video:
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.
