After the Big Dog robot, a four legged technology marvel which mimicked the natural walking mechanism of a four legged animal, the US based robotics company called Boston Dynamics has now developed a two legged version of the robot, and this one seems to imitate walking of a human. The bipedal robot called Petman, has primarily been developed for the US army, to test military suits, and it is able to crawl and perspire through artificial glands, in addition to walking, to simulate real life conditions. At Robotic Magazine we had published the news of this robot while it was in development a few months ago. See that news entry here.
