U.S. Government Creates Transformers-Like ‘Cheetah’ Robot

The U.S. government's Defense Advanced Research Project Agency (DARPA) has created a robot that is supposedly capable of outrunning Olympic champion Usain Bolt – and it looks like Ravage, the cat-like Decepticon from Transformers.

DARPA is calling it a "Cheetah" robot, and funded its design (it was designed and tested by Boston Dynamics) for use in "emergency responses, humanitarian missions and other defense missions."

You can check it out in the video to your left.
