We’re already amazed of all the Cheetah videos online. Cheetah is the robot that can walk, run and move like a person! Now she also can jump! MIT developed a robot modeled after a cheetah. It can run up to speeds of 10 mph, though researchers estimate it will eventually reach 30 mph.

MIT cheetah robot lands the running jump

In a leap for robotic development, the MIT researchers who built a robotic cheetah have now trained it to see and jump over hurdles as it runs — making this the first four-legged robot to run and jump over. The first videos of a jumping Cheetah was launched already last year, but the latest video shows an improved version of the jump with more control and more speed. Researchers have created new algorithms to autonomously jump over obstacles with the MIT Cheetah 2 robot!

See! Cheetah can jump! We have a scary future ahead!

An impressing but scary development

We find it impressing but at the same time a bit scary to see how well this robot works. It may be used in good programs, but if it comes in wrong hands, it may be used in wars and even to fight against people. We live in a scary world, and one thing is for sure: The future is even more scary! We are a bit worried. Only the fantasy can stop us now!

It is more than a jumping robot. It may be used in so many programmes.
