A biped walking robot - a Terminator ancestor?

This biped robotic humanoid is being built by Boston Dynamics to test military suits used to protect soldiers in chemical warfare.

As an evolutionary advance from its four-legged BigDog platform, PETMAN does the ol' heel-toe at a healthy 3.2 MPH (5.14 KPH) and packs enough balancing intelligence to remain upright even when given a shove from the side.

Not long until they work out how to weaponize it :)
