Petman! Roger, Roger.

BotJunkie made me aware several days ago of Petman. Now humanoid robots are nothing new these days and without arms and with tethered cords, this might seem rather primitive. But between the speed and the agility this bot is far ahead of the pack.

The company which makes it, Boston Dynamics, also made Big Dog – the scary-ass cool-beans buzzing robot mule (notice that he looks clumsy but does not wipe out on the ice as I tend to):

They are working on the noisy power source so he will eventually not sound like a swarm of bees with PMS.


Here is the most advanced version (at least, the most advanced one that is not classified and carrying a grenade launcher and a machine gun).

(1:09 = LOL)



  1. Hells bells! The robot invasion has reached the shores of the Baron himself! Save yourselves, no one is safe!

  2. And suck it, Creigh Deeds! You stuttering, lying fuck. Virginia saw straight through you and that douchebag Steve Shannon. Woot! Now go, Jersey! The alternatives are not perfect, but they’re a step in the right direction.

    Loved your previous post re: the religious conversion, but jumpin’ Jehoshaphat, son, I didn’t expect a thesis on the subject!

    Still, well thought out, and informative. Bravo.

  3. I got on a roll and could not stop. Religion is almost as much fun as blasphemy.
