Mit Shows Off Backflipping Mini Cheetah Robot
MIT is showing off their new Mini Cheetah robot which is capable of doing a backflip.
The small robot is the first four-legged robot to pull off this flipping stunt. The Mini Cheetah weights around 2 pounds, and can run at around 2.45 meters per second (8.8km.hr) which is not bad.
If your thinking one of these would make a great home robot, we’re sorry to let you know this is only a research platform for MIT and they have no plans of producing these for purchase in the future.
