We have built Intelligent Robotic Animals
Robots are not new to us, we have seen them on television every day, whether it be in documentary or on the news. Many of these robots are controlled by remotes like gamepads and laptops. There are few robots that are designed to think of themselves and are being given characteristics of animals to help their purpose.
The US military has designed a four legged robot that could run up to 28 miles per hour. It has the characteristics of a cheetah and it is used to carry equipment behind enemy lines. This robot could alos keep itself from falling with no human intervention, making it useful for rugged terrains.
