We have seen the future of battlefield robots, and it’s PETMAN. This robot, developed by Boston Dynamics, “can run, juke, twist and turn, and even bang out some push-ups — it’s designed to move just like a human soldier, but not so that it can fight wars.” Video after the break.

The robot, which Boston Dynamics will deliver to the military sometime next year, is designed to be a 50th percentile male (or an average North American man): it’s nearly six feet tall, weighs 180 pounds, and is able to simulate sweating, respiring and changes in body temperature.
