Rise of the Machines...

We've found some astonishing footage of a a humanoid robot in active development.

This is PETMAN - Protection Ensemble Test Mannequin - which is being developed to test the durability of safety clothing used by humans when investigating dangers in a radioactive environment.

This machine has been built by Boston Dynamics - an engineering company that builds robots and develops technology for human simulation. From Cheetah-like droids that can run at nearly 30mph to this incredible humanoid, what they have done is truly amazing.

Check out footage of PETMAN in action at the Boston Dynamics website.
