Cheetah Robot Running On A Treadmill

Posted September 6, 2012 - By Joseph Baxter

A group of engineers at Boston Dynamics, funded by your tax dollars from DARPA must have concluded that real cheetahs have lost all their swagger and need to be replaced with a more mechanical, badass version. (Well, duh!)

Now, they have created this running robotic face-ripper which can reach speeds of up to 28.3 mph, which, as they point out, is about .5 mph faster than Olympic runner, Usain Bolt.

Either U.S. defense spending is taking a zoological route, or Skynet just got a new weapon in its search for John Connor.
