Could this development in biomimetic robotics change terrestrial transport?

This video from MIT News is a brief glimpse into the Biomimetic Robotics Laboratory at MIT, where professors and students at the forefront of robotic innovation have built a cheetah-inspired robot, designed to move efficiently and react to obstacles dynamically. While the robot was created mostly as a novelty, the team hopes the technology they’ve developed can eventually be put to practical use, either on the next generation of artificial limbs, or even a new form of transportation.

Director: Melanie Gonick
