Soon we will be running away from robot cheetahs

It has been reported that Boston Dynamics, a robotics company that is known for BigDog (a freakish-looking walking robot) has been commissioned by the military to create quadruped robots that can outrun human beings called Cheetah. Good news for would-be criminals on the run, the Cheetah won’t be here for another 20 months. The bad news is when it does; the robot will be able to achieve speeds of up to 30 mph and it is supposed to be stealthy. Now if only we knew what the robot would do once it caught up to its prey. Watch a video of Boston Dynamics’ BigDog robot after the break:
