Looks like BigDog finally has a robotic counterpart to take him out for a walk. Actually, Boston Dynamics's PETMAN has been under development for a while now, but this is our first opportunity to see him decked out in full battle gear.
It's the next step in creating a robot who can pass as human. Boston Dynamics, the group who brought you the creepy BigDog robot, is working with the military to build PetMan, who walks just like a human. And that's not the only thing human about PetMan.
