Comments Off on PETMAN: The Anthropomorphic Robot Designed to Test Chemical Protection Clothing

We love robots here at Inhabitat — from the zero-energy BlueBiped to the first robotic astronaut , they show us how technology can not only benefit us in the present, but also in the future. Robots can also help prevent the unnecessary loss of human life by serving as bomb disposal units and crash-test dummies. Now, the US military is working with Boston Dynamics to develop an anthropomorphic robot that will be used to test new chemical protection clothing.
