Terrible Technology Tuesday

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.


  1. I'm looking forward to cars w/ legs.

    1. I will only drive a car with legs if it looks like a giant spider.

  2. you could always befriend them through mentoring a FIRST team...

    1. Well of course a zombie is friends with the robot death squard.

      You just want giant armed-and-armored-robot-cats killing us, just so you zombies can gnaw on our brains after we're dead.

      I'm not gonna fall for that one!
