Some of my vast readership may remember my post about the creepy running robot our good friends at DARPA were developing. Well, there's a new/different one from those scamps at MIT, and this one is actually able to run on its own, instead of being stuck tethered to a treadmill:
Oh, and this one is electric, so it's nice and quiet and stealthy.
So, yeah, there's that.
I, for one, do not welcome our soon-to-arrive, armed-and-armored robot cheetah overlords.
