DARPA Robot Runs at 18 mph

The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the actual inventor of the Internet, has built a 4 legged robot that can run at 18 mph.   Of course, the power source [the electricity, electric motor and hydraulic pump and oil tank] is all off board which let it (the robot) run more than 30 feet before dropping from exhaustion.

Can’t get over thinking it’s running backwards though.

    “If my robot had a face like that . . .” They need to put a cheetah head up front.
