World’s Fastest Sprinter Robot - Planar Elliptical Runner by ihmc Robotics

IHMC claim that the bot can run about 12 miles per hour on a treadmill. To put this into perspective, the fastest marathon to have ever been run was completed at a pace of just under 13 miles per hour. The planar elliptical runner by name, IHMC’s bot has been developed to test the limits of two-legged locomotion in machines. Its creators even go as far to suggest that the if the bot were the size of a human, it could reach speeds of 20 to 30 miles per hour—reaching speeds greater than usain bolt’s record breaking 27.8mph sprint.
