MIT researchers are behind some of the most exciting projects we have seen. MIT’s Robotic Cheetah is particularly interesting though. This is a robot that could potentially reach speeds of up to 30 mph. The goal of these types of these projects is to understand the locomotion aspects of animals. By studying animals, researchers will be able to develop better prosthetic legs and more.
The researchers looked at a Cheetah’s motion to better understand how to improve their robot. This electrically powered robot can run and jump over obstacles. In the future, robots can be quiet, efficient, and still powerful. What’s not to like?
