Meet PETMAN

PETMAN is an adult-sized humanoid robot developed by Boston Dynamics, who is best known for the BigDog.

I can’t wait to see the day PETMAN rides BigDog 😀

The full article on it’s development can be found over at IEEE Spectrum.


Make a robot friend with Adafruit’s CRICKIT – A Creative Robotics & Interactive Construction Kit. It’s an add-on to our popular Circuit Playground Express, FEATHER and other platforms to make and program robots with CircuitPython, MakeCode, and Arduino. Start controlling motors, servos, solenoids. You also get signal pins, capacitive touch sensors, a NeoPixel driver and amplified speaker output. It complements & extends your boards so you can still use all the goodies on the microcontroller, now you have a robotics playground as well.

  2. Very impressive robot given its size and weight requirements (nearly 6 feet, 180 pounds) …
    I have seen BigDog run as an autonomous unit, but PETMAN seems to require a tether to provide its power .

    This leads me to question the longevity of the power supply before requiring a recharge or analogous refueling .
