Darpa’s Cheetah-Bot Designed to Chase Human Prey

“As the name implies, Cheetah is designed to be a four-legged robot with a flexible spine and articulated head (and potentially a tail) that runs faster than the fastest human. In addition to raw speed, Cheetah’s makers promise that it will have the agility to make tight turns so that it can ‘zigzag to chase and evade’ and be able to stop on a dime”.

Too bad we didn’t have one of those when we were carrying all that beer and ammo into the bush back in the Sixties and Seventies…!
