The Backflipping Robot Cheetah

The Backflipping Robot Cheetah

By: Alex Lopez

MIT has a new robot, designed and constructed by Ben Katz, Jared Di Carlo, and Sangbae Kim. This little cheetah can go up to 2.45 meters per second. It has the agility of a gymnast, is multi-terrain, and will even back-flip. When the cheetah falls, it can flip over and keep going. This robot is an engineering marvel and gives a bright future to those who designed it.

This relates to engineering because the design for the cheetah had to be thought out, in order for it to flip and travel at fast speeds.
