The Pentagon's Super-Fast Robot Now Runs on Its Own
Last year, DARPA unveiled Cheetah: a robot that could run faster than Usain Bolt. Now, the same team has managed to create a version that doesn't need a power cord, making the electronic beast free to roam wherever it chooses. Be afraid. Be very afraid.
Cheetah can reach 28mph, while WildCat can only manage 16mph. But, hey, given that's faster than most of us can run, it's not too bad. And remember, WildCat can keep up that speed for as long as it motor runs, which humans definitely can't.
Certainly, it's fast enough to chase you, and perhaps catch you, and maybe even kill you. All without a wire in sight.
Crazy...How long until these are roaming the streets with guns attached to them..
