Boston Dynamics, the creator of AlphaDog, reveals its latest creation – the 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.
“Testing special clothing”… Really? Well that is one hell of a mannequin! Remember what I said in my Deus Ex post? Yeah…
