Boston Dynamics robot runs faster than Usain Bolt
The world's fastest man, Usain Bolt, might want to look over his shoulder. Cheetah robot is gaining.
The Cheetah, developed by Boston Dynamics, hit 28.3 miles per hour, a smidge better than Bolt's time in a 20-meter split.
The version of Cheetah seen in a YouTube video that has now gone viral runs on a treadmill with offboard power.
Testing will begin early next year on an outdoor, untethered Cheetah robot.
