PETMAN, the biped humanoid from Boston Dynamics, recently got to do its job: to test military clothing and equipment. As seen in the video below, the robot was given some clothes and equipment to test... and it did just that. It is very interesting to see the robot walk and move effortlessly.
What do you think of this kind of progress in robotics? What does the sight of a full sized humanoid robot dressed in military clothing bring to mind? Impending doom? The robopocalypse? Perhaps instead you may see it as the dawn of a new age where robots can assist us in almost everything we do? Leave a comment with your thoughts. Via IEEE Spectrum.
