MIT’s Cheetah Robot Lands the Running Jump

MIT’s Biomimetic Robotics Lab created the Cheetah. Now it has become the first four-legged robot to “see” and jump over hurdles in its path while running. When you think of the many instant calculations that a flesh-and-blood animal must do to accomplish this (even though they do it quickly and constantly), this robot is all the more impressive.

It won’t be so cool when these things are chasing you. Take some comfort in the fact that robotics engineers type in anagrams the way I do and “algorithms” comes out as “algrotihms.” -via reddit
