Have you ever actually seen a cat?

Reported.

On topic:

That's really cool!

Reported for having a dog avatar in a cat thread. That's trolling.

Have you ever actually seen a dog?



All hail the KING, Andrespetmonkey

Considering its running on a treadmill is it actually moving forward or just bouncing up and down while the mat under it moves



Gotta love the U.S. government's priorities =)

Uh... If it was only bouncing up and down then it would slowly go backwards...

By the time it hits 15 mph, just over half Bolt's speed, Bolt has already crossed the finish line.

Not if Cheetah comes with machineguns.



Nintendo is selling their IPs to Microsoft and this is true because:

So... What's wrong with using a car in emergency responses, humanitarian missions and other
defense missions?? Or will this baby shoot lasers?

Why would you want something that moves on wheels when you can have it run on legs? Legs automatically bring a 10x intensifier to the intimidation scale.

I'm assuming the real value in legs will be the ability to cross terrain that's too rocky or unstable for wheels.

Pretty sure the current robotic cheetah would trip over if it encountered a small stone.

I agree on the intimidation scale though, especially as it doesn't have a head.



hahaha I loved one of the commentaries below that video: don't laugh at the special needs transformer!!!! rofl!!!



I'm on Twitter @DanneSandin!

Furthermore, I think VGChartz should add a "Like"-button.

Made my day. Thanks. =)

 

Also Lol @ the youtube comment about the special needs transformer.



DARPA and its insane stuff. I remind reading other day about gene therapy so soldiers could regrow limbs, go for days without food and yes, run faster than Usain Bolt. As always, warfare is the main thing driving science and technology forward, sadly.

Yeah, wheels are topologically way more efficient in plain surfaces, I'm sure, but the intimidation factor goes from the one of a silly bot on wheels to the walking monster of a sci-fi nightmare.
