The robot-makers over at Boston Dynamics make some consistently amazing robots, and consistently amazing videos of said robots. Another of their 'bots, BigDog, took runner-up in our drones vs. robots bracket, and the robot you see here, Petman, didn't do too bad either.
Petman, which is probably one of the more human-shaped of the humanoid robots around, is being used here to test temperature-regulating camouflage clothing and a gas mask. (The robot's made with Department of Defense funding, after all.) Any human wearing this suit will probably be a little less--lurch-y? lumber-y? gaitless?--than Petman, but it looks like the suit held up through the series of stretches it tries to do. Seriously, it practically does a jumping jack.
It should be packin a pickax. Just because.
This looks so human and strangely the ridged movements make it seem like a super strong human too.
I wish to see the robot man do a walk and run without all the cables and lines, though the video ie extremely impressive.
I agree with Anylcon - the rigid movements make it look like exactly what it is - an extra-heavy humanoid that is extra-strong to compensate, and generally quite terrifying.
Um, are these things going to be painted yellow with black stripes so people know to be careful around them? Because they look so approachable they might kill someone by accident.
At least with a more Terminator-like appearance you could be sure nobody is going to get any closer than they need to.
