Look out Autonomous, military-funded 'cheetah' robot is off its leash

What do you get when you combine state-of-the-art robotics and military funding? An epically cool yet slightly intimidating bouncing cheetah… obviously.

MIT researchers first made headlines with their four-legged bot last September when they announced they had designed a cheetah-inspired machine able to run and jump freely albeit “blind,” as the robot carried no cameras or additional vision equipment.

Since then they have been hard at work improving their project, in part funded by the U.S. military’s research arm the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA).
