A Running Robot (SkyNet one step closer)

A Running Robot (SkyNet one step closer)

This is amazing / terrifying: a robot that can easily out run you. It's the WildCat, and yes it is financed by Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (that's right...this is Department of Defense hardware). This is the first untethered running robot of it's size.  In other words, it's just a matter of time before this thing is outfitted with steel jaws and stalking "enemies of the state" Predator Drone Strike-style, but in a far scarier way. This is amazing and I want one.
