Robot Cat

(YouTube link)

Two of the most popular things on the internet are robots and cats. So wouldn't it be wonderful to have a robot cat? Researchers at Switzerland's École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne (EFPL) have developed a prototype robot that walks and runs like a cat. They say it is very stable and fast.

"This morphology gives the robot the mechanical properties from which cats benefit," explains EPFL's Alexander Sproewitz, "that's to say a marked running ability and elasticity in the right spots, to ensure stability. The robot is thus naturally more autonomous."

There is one problem I see …that thing does not have a head! It will be hard to become attached to and serve a feline overlord who can't even turn his nose up at you. -via The Week
