The Cheetah Bot is Unbelievably Fast and Furious

The Cheetah Bot will be created by Boston Dynamics especially for DARPA(Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency).

The Cheetah Bot will be much faster than any human and capable of hunting. Bearing a close resemblance to the real predator, the Cheetah Bot will feature a standard, man-made, feline body, tail and four legs, making the bot efficient enough to run, chase and stop.

Boston Dynamics has not revealed much about the animal bot's military applications; however, the Discovery Channel has taught me that nature's cheetah is one powerful being, so I'm thinking the Cheetah Bot has a lot to offer.

According to Wired.Com, "Cheetah’s makers see it galloping to the rescue and building a brave new future in the fields of emergency response, firefighting, advanced agriculture and vehicular travel."
