MIT researchers have developed an algorithm for bounding that they’ve successfully implemented in a robotic cheetah. (Learn more:

The MIT Cheetah 2 contains the custom electric motor designed by Jeffrey Lang, the Vitesse Professor of Electrical Engineering at MIT and the amplifier designed by David Otten, a principal research engineer in MIT’s Research Laboratory of Electronics.

This work was supported by the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency.

This robot would be a great toy for kids to ride and kids will achieve their dream to become a cowboy

The Half Red Moon says:

And what if it falls by side… I mean how will it get up….anyone…

Excellent. Keep it up

Potato Man says:

Lol. They are hoping this bouncy ass thing can replace cars? 😂😂 they better cure motion sickness first! 😂😂😂

tip on fast running, must be stoked.

ska¡¡a ¡¡a says:

y'all remember that episode of "black mirror"?
it's called metalhead .
go and have a wee look, and then reassess this.

Sant Kumar says:

super bro….you are 1000 times uper ginius bro….

Rakesh Kumar says:

Can I sit on it plz?

Aymen Brahim says:

Why is this recommendation

SniperBaseball says:

Cheetahs hind legs are more flexible and able to stretch farther forward to create more velocity and jump time

Jayant Hooda says:

Remember Stephens words.
I am coming there in 2 years……

Does anyone know how can I get in touch with Sangbae Kim?? I'm working on a proto type and need some assistance thank you

TerryLicia says:

In 2014, when this was made, I knew THEN and had known for some time that having a 'combustion engine and hydraulics' was NOT necesssary. It could be done with electronics SO much better! Hmmm … didn't think that was a secret either! I'm just an old anthropologist, not a mechanical whiz kid from MIT who not only KNEW it was possible but then, DID IT! Woohooo! Love it! I read somewhere that now it's called the Wildcat … dunno if that's true but I'd love it if so! That was the name of my high school team!

Wilbur Wafer says:

All this persuit of technology above everything and anything else is going to be used to control the mass of people eventually. They're not doing this for the fun of it, it's eventually going to be used so the sociopath elites can have super unstoppable robots defend them and give them everything they want while the world and everyone else in it burns. Already they're using machines more and more to make people jobless, the future they have in store for us will make 1984 look like a picnic.

MaxBrix says:

Cheetahs have distinctive springy backs and long tails for balance. The back curves dramatically bringing the back legs forward of the front legs. The shoulder barely moves up and down. Goats run with stiff backs, springy legs, and tiny tails. They bounce significantly in the front. I think they copied goat locomotion and called it a cheetah. Cool robogoat though.

Ken Yup says:

They're doing good job,so admire of USA
