US Army to Spawn Petman
There is always a new move from DARPA and the military when it comes to robotics. This time it is Petman, a humanoid that can stand and walk and react like a human. The Army, who claims Petman is BigDog's big brother, will be using him to test chemical protection clothing. When an agent is released the robot simulates human responses within the suit such as sweating, temperature control and humidity. The robosoldier should be ready by 2011. Maybe by that time, he won't be necessary.
