WildCat is a four-legged robot being developed to run fast on all types of terrain. So far WildCat has run at about 16 mph on flat terrain using bounding and galloping gaits.

This thing is intense!  Imagine what it will look like when they can compact the design and make it look like an actual Cheetah (partially serious).
