TOO HUMAN: Terminator Robot Testing Camouflage

petman-humanoid-robot.jpg

This is a video of Boston Dynamic's PETMAN humanoid robot testing out its maneuverability in camouflage. It's, uh, it's terrifyingly human-like. Just imagine in the future there will be groups of these things patrolling the city with glowing red eyes and if they catch you out after curfew they'll shoot you dead in the street. That's just reality folks -- learn to accept it (plus how to navigate your local sewer system).

Hit the jump for the video, it's worth a watch.

Thanks to Zeis and Anit D, who agree a world with terminator robots is no world to raise kids in.

    Wait a minute...why would a robot wear a gas mask? They're just trying to freak us out. Not cool.

  • Closet Nerd

    That camouflage sucks! I can TOTALLY see him!
    .....just sayin

  • zguess

    WHY THE *!@#$ IS IT WEARING A GAS MASK

  • I dunno, buuuut kill it with fire. ASAP.

  • Steven Sanchez

    I think someone should make a GIF image of this and have it captioned "Haters Gonna Hate"

  • It could be one of those robot guys from the subway in that suit.

  • Emmitt Morgans

    Are you my mummy-board? MUUUUUMEEEEEEEEE!?

  • Kevin

    We should be handing these things assault rifles and dropping them you-know-where.

  • cardstock

    I disagree, we should not drop them down my pants.

  • That's a weird way to take a poop, PETMAN.

  • Eric Hettervik

    The first Petman video had my skin crawling. This one doesn't bother me for some reason. Maybe it's the zoom level or the fact that it's wearing a full-body suit?

  • kristian

    who could have guessed Krytens walk is scientifically accurate.

  • Tallon Chandler

    Nothing scarier than a future ruled by techno viking robot soldiers. You could remove the word robot and that would still make me shit my pants.

  • Crucial

    Hah! Your comment made this video so much better.

  • Tallon Chandler

    Thank you very much. Every time I see a reply, I assume it will be racial slurs.

  • Crucial

    Lanky elf.

  • ODwanKenObi

    I bet you wouldn't look so tough without those cables holding you up. Also, it walks like it has a rash between it's thighs from running all day in the desert.

  • Joe Ryburn

    Its only a matter of time before one comes back in time and tries to kill Linda Hammilton.
