Though at first glance PETMAN appears to be braced by guy wires, it is self-balancing and only wired externally to draw power. Each new video shows off a more polished bot with a wider range of tricks. (See the latter two videos below for PETMAN’s evolution).

Briefly pictured without the suit on in the video, we can see Boston Dynamics has neatly concealed PETMAN’s wild nest of wires under an exoskeleton and fashioned it a head. Taken together, the new PETMAN sans fatigues is reminiscent of I, Robot’s Sonny, if a touch less advanced. (For the time being.)

How long will it be till they are the police force?

The military?

The world just got a little scarier.

There is something quite unsettling about that video. Gas masks for a robot? Obviously done for effect.
Nevertheless, this is going to cause me nightmares. 13.gif

Nothing you can't fix with some small EMP devices.


What politics from both sides wants to teach us is that things are never complex. If you have your little package and something doesn't fit into that package, You don't know what to make of it so you want to dismiss it or then you will have to do the work of reconsidering your assumptions. - Michael Malice
