Cheetah Robot Can Outrun Humans

By John Farrier | Neatorama.com

It’s amazing what robots can do these days--punching humans, stabbing meat, using human flesh as fuel. Truly, the future will be filled with technological marvels that will make our lives easier.

Take Boston Dynamics’s Cheetah robot as an example. It can reach 29.3 miles per hour on its legs--faster than the fastest human live. So if you go for a walk and accidentally forget your keys, your own Cheetah robot can chase you down.

That’s the future. Won’t it be wonderful?
