You wont believe your eyes when you see what the US Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (USDARPA) just did! They essentially created a robotic cheetah, which is capable of running at about 18 mph (29 km per hour).

The original design of the robot is to more effectively help war fighters across a greater range of missions. The basic movements of the robot, as you can see, has been modeled after animals in the wild that have great speed. This robot can even flex and unflex its back in order to stretch the spine and run faster….
