Hier der neueste Roboter von Boston Dynamics (BigDog, AlphaDog), diesmal ein Zweibeiner, den sie gebaut haben, um Klamotten für die Armee zu testen. Wer's glaubt. Jedenfalls, wie YT-Kommentator Thunderpants121 bereits anmerkt: „Dear Boston Dynamics, please put a terrifying skull head on the top. Thank you, My Nightmares.“
PETMAN, a two-legged, 180-pound machine nearly six feet tall. Boston Dynamics, which has created a slew of robots for the military over the years, is expected today to publicly unveil the first video of the nearly fully developed PETMAN, power-walking on a treadmill in the company’s labs.
PETMAN, an acronym for Protection Ensemble Test Mannequin, does not look like Arnold Schwarzenegger, who played the Terminator killing machine in the first of a series of movies. For one thing, PETMAN still lacks a head, and it can’t say “Hasta la vista, baby.’’
