PETMAN: He sweats

Meet a robot that can walk, squat, kneel, and even do push-ups.

From IEEE Spectrum:

PETMAN is an adult-sized humanoid robot developed by Boston Dynamics, the robotics firm best known for the BigDog quadruped. Today, the company is unveiling footage of the robot's latest capabilities. It's stunning. The humanoid, which will certainly be compared to the Terminator Series 800 model, can perform various movements and maintain its balance much like a real person.

The robot can also simulate respiration and sweating, among other things.
