Submission + - Latest Boston Dynamics robot is a biped (bostondynamics.com)

Beezlebub33 writes: Boston Dynamics is probably best known for its BigDog (video). They have just release a video of their latest robot called PETMAN which is a bipedal robot, video here. It shows some of the same dynamics as BigDog, including reaction to perturbations (see video at 24 sec), though it's a push rather than a kick. Boston Dynamics says that the robot is for "testing chemical protection clothing". I'd like to know what it's really for.
