Nowhere To Run: Bipedal Robot Faster Than Any Human

fast-running-robot.jpg

This is a video of the bipedal Raptor robot, a two legged predator capable of speeds up to 46km/h (~28.6MPH). For reference, Hussain Bolt tops out at 27.44MPH (~44km/h). That means this little f***er could easily catch up to my out of shape ass and attempt murder. Only ATTEMPT though, because I ain't going out like that. No, I visited the fortune teller and she said I'm going out in an extreme sport accident. The crazy thing is she said I'm not actually going to be the one PARTICIPATING in the extreme sport, leading me to believe I'm going to be struck by a man in a wingsuit while watering the plants on my balcony.

Keep going for a video of the OH YEAH? Let's see how fast you can run without the tether.

Thanks to Joseph Jingleheimer, Nicholas, tuqueque and The Carlos, who agree if you have to be attached to a stick in order to stand, you're not outrunning anything.

    Now, let's see how good can it dodge gun fire. I'm sure we're all safe.

    It can run faster than people, but most people can run further than an extension cord, so i think we are still good here.

  • stuffsticks

    Might be a bit of a stretch to get past an extension cord when you a fat couch potato. But the rest of us are definitely safe.... For Now....

    Where can I offer my body for cybernetic prosthetic experimentation?

  • WhiteEagle2

    Oh god, if this thing could run that fast without the support beam. They are going to have to re-write the terminator movies. I'm imagining swarms from the World War Z Movie, but terminators.

    Do you want Skynet to happen? Because thats how you get Skynet.

  • AdvancePlays

    Now stick a knife on the stabilizer and now it's fit for a place in a Half-Life game.

  • doogs

    Not sure if you meant it or not, but his name is Usain Bolt.

  • The Magnificent Newtboy

    A robotic version of a dinosaur from the waist down... GW must be so conflicted.

  • Tyguy

    .....now let's remove the support beam and see what happens. Yeah....that's what I thought.
