Wildcat is the latest version of the fastest
legged robot in the world and can run up to 25 km an hour.

Developers at Boston Dynamics hope that Wildcat will one day be able to reach speeds of over 100 km an hour.

With funding from Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA), the research arm of the US Department of Defence, researchers have already started work on Big Dog, a futuristic pack mule, and PETMAN, an anthropomorphic robot for testing equipment.
