    The U.S. military may be 30 percent robotic by the year 2020 according to Doug Few and Bill Smart of Washington University in St. Louis.

    Looks like they are going to field test them in 2013.

    Typical ignorant BBC reporting.

    A (real) Cheetah cannot run at 75mph.

    Total garbage....which explains why I believe 50% or less of their spoutings....little better than the gutter press nowadays.

    Perhaps some of the money spent on these projects could be put towards the protection of some of the REAL Cheetahs that are currently being wiped out by the plague of 'clever' human beings....so clever that they are hellbent on destroying their own planet.

    Any better?

    Bolt vs bolted together: Robotic cheetah runs faster than Usain (as long as it's in a straight line)



    "A robot cheetah has overtaken the fastest man on earth.
    The US Military funded 'cheetah' robot set a new record for legged robots by sprinting at 28.3 mph.
    Olympic champion Bolt's world record for the 100 metres saw him reach a speed of 27.8 mph in 2009.
    However, Bolt still has some advantages - the robot can only run in a straight line on a treadmill, and needs to be plugged into power at all times.
