Robot Cheetah-Hurdler


This robot world just took a huge leap into the future. Literally and figuratively.

Developed by MIT researchers, this Cheetah bot has improved from its last showing last year, where it was able to run at 10 miles per hour. This time, it’s shown to be able to jump hurdles, much like a human can. Using lidar (Light detection and ranging), the robot is able to detect obstacles from a distance and can clear them in a running jump, without any human assistance.

The days of robot bunnies hiding from robot cheetahs are drawing to a close.

    layout of your site? Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could
    connect with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having
    one or two images. Maybe you could space it out better?
