The new robot can climb and jump like something out of a Terminator movie, watch the video here.

PET-PROTO is the new Terminator-style humanoid robot, which has stemmed from PETMAN, a former model also created by Boston Dynamics.

The DARPA’s Robotics Challenge in 2013 requires entry robots to perform tasks in "dangerous, degraded, human-engineered environments."

The DARPA preview video shows us what we're likely to expect from the comp. This new bot (built to resemble the human form with two legs, arms and a torso), tackles a bunch of obstacles with its sticky legs, then climbs walls, ledges and stairs.

There’s still a long way to go before we’re robots serving us coffee, and fighting our wars, but this is a pretty incredible start.
