Carried out on a treadmill this robot clocks up 28.3 mph to Bolt's 27.78 mph. The poor, mechanical thing goes out of sync at its maximum speed and has to be lifted off the treadmill. robot speed test

This is the latest published effort in developing a military robot for future warfare. I can think of much better ways of using the funding; for the benefit of humanity for instance. TC.
