Cheetah-like bot for US Army has not a taste for Zebras
posted March 2 2011 21:22.31 by Giorgos Lazaridis

It will be able to sprint, take sharp corners, zigzag and it will stop with outstanding precision. Its name is the Cheetah, and the manufacturer hopes to have a prototype built in 20 months. The final cost is not yet announced, but it will not be a cheap one. It is designed to support the US troops, but according to Boston Dynamics, army officials still donít know exactly what the robots will be used for.

Boston Dynamic is also the manufacturer of the successful BigDog robot which was unveiled back in 2008. BigDog supports American troops by carrying up to four backpacks of equipment over bumpy and rocky ground, and comes with high-tech gadgets including laser gyros, video camera sensors and an on-board computer. The following video demonstrates this bot. Worth to watch.
