Cassie the Robot Runs a 5K



Cassie is a walking and running robot inspired by the biomechanics of the ostrich. The robot from Agility Robotics looks a bit like an ostrich, too, if the bird could operate without a head. Cassie harnesses machine learning to negotiate a route and stay on track. In this video, see how she runs a 5K course in 53 minutes on a single battery charge. She's no Olympic sprinter, but my battery would have run down much sooner. -via Laughing Squid

It makes me wince. It looks like it hurts. I want them to put something soft on the points that contact the ground. Just some neoprene or a sponge or even just a little felt. Something to soften the shock.
