PETMAN is an anthropomorphic robot developed by Boston Dynamics for testing special clothing used by the US Army. PETMAN balances itself as it walks, squats and does simple calisthenics. PETMAN simulates human physiology by controlling temperature, humidity and sweating inside the clothing to provide realistic test conditions. PETMAN development is lead by Boston Dynamics, working in partnership with Measurement Technologies Northwest, Oak Ridge National Lab and MRI Global. The work is being done for the US Army PD-CCAT-TI.

I remember back when people were impressed with that white, space-ship looking robot which took one or 2 clunky steps at a time before falling over.

Now look how far things have come in such a short time; a robot doing one of the best haters gonna hate walks ive seen in a long time.

Hopefully I can get my thoughts downloaded into one of those babies in a couple of decades.

Would you expect a copy, or a transfer consciousness?
A transfer. Copying wouldn't really help me, just the copy of me. Can't imagine how such a thing would be achieved though.
