PETMAN ~ Boston Dynamics Testable Anthrobot!

Thanks to Joi Ito for spotting PETMAN from MIT alumco Boston Dynamics, same folks who delivered the Big Dog!
"PETMAN is an anthropomorphic robot developed by Boston Dynamics for testing special clothing used by the US Army. PETMAN balances itself as it walks, squats and does simple calisthenics. PETMAN simulates human physiology by controlling temperature, humidity and sweating inside the clothing to provide realistic test conditions."
