    Default Darpa's Cheetah beats fastest human

    http://www.darpa.mil/NewsEvents/Rele...012/09/05.aspx



    I wonder if the next war will be fought with machines like this
    For all that we have done, as a civilization, as individuals, the universe is not stable, and nor is any single thing within it. Stars consume themselves, the universe itself rushes apart, and we ourselves are composed of matter in constant flux. Colonies of cells in temporary alliance, replicating and decaying and housed within, an incandescent cloud of electrical impulses. This is reality, this is self knowledge, and the perception of it will, of course, make you dizzy.

    I wonder if that thing can actually stop without crashing/exploding. It's pretty cool though.

    That robot runs faster than a human, and this robot jumps higher than a human. What would happen if they put them together?
