Boston Dynamics developed him for testing the US Army"s clothing, but all I see is the prototype for a Terminator

I don`t see how that could possibly be a better tester of clothing than a real human.

yea i know right, not like this "robot" could walk for 50 thousand miles checking the clothing out for wear and tea without getting tired.

It`s no T1000 but it`s a start.

My eyes would be popping out of amazement, if that went over someone`s head.

The only thing keeping my eyes from popping out of my head are the retaining chords from its shoulders. But still, impressively humanlike.

But why couldn`t they get it to do puchups without shuddering? Sure, I do after a few, but it`s a damn robot.

why would they spend a boatload of money developing this just to test clothing?
