Submission + - Cheetah robot outpaces Usain Bolt in setting new robotic land speed record->

cylonlover writes: Usain Bolt might have taken home the 100 meters gold medal from the recent London 2012 Olympics, but things could have been different had DARPA’s Cheetah robot been allowed in the field. Living up to DARPA's original goal of developing a robot that could outrun any human, the quadruped robot has set a new robotic land speed record of 28.3 mph (45.5 km/h) for a 20-meter (65.6 ft) split, bettering Bolt’s human speed record by 0.52 mph (0.8 km/h) and breaking its own previous record of 18 mph (28.9 km/h) set earlier this year.

Of course you can't flap your arms and fly to the moon. After a while you'd run out of air to push against.
