What am I Sappy Cat Blogging?

September 7, 2012

Seen on PopSci, the robot cheetah, developed by Boston Dynamics, set a new land speed record of 28.3 miles per hour –

The article also says that while the Cheetah runs tethered to an external power supply, they are about to launch the Wildcat which needs no external support.  I have included the photos of the real cheetahs because this is Sappy Cat Blogging.
