You may remember Boston Dynamic’s Petman anthropomorphic robot, with his terrifying human-like movements, testing various types of military protective gear. In order to properly test such gear, the robot needs to act as human as possible in its movements. Petman does just that. He even sweats.

Good lord, I’m calling it a “he.” It’s begun.

Well, now they’ve put him it in a chemical protection suit. Watch this video and tell me you could know, for a fact, that it’s a robot under there and not a human in a hazmat suit.
