Robot Cheetah Bounds Like A Real Giant Cat

Researchers at Massachusetts Institute of Technology have developed an algorithm for bounding that they've successfully implemented in a robotic cheetah.

It's pretty intense, but awesome at the same time -- here's hoping a practical use can be found alongside the probably inevitable, likely terrifying battlefield implications.
