MIT is back with the latest version of its Cheetah quadrupedal robot, the Mini Cheetah, and it’s got a new trick up its sleeve: it can do backflips.
Backflipping robots is nothing new — Boston Dynamics’ much bigger Atlas robot pulled off the trick in November 2017 — but the Mini Cheetah is the first four legged robot to do it, which is almost more impressive. After all, plenty of humans can backflip, but how many dogs do you know that can do the same thing (the answer, apparently is “a bunch of them,” but still.)
The Mini Cheetah is (as the name implies) a smaller version of the larger Cheetah 3 from last year — it weights around 20 pounds, and can trot along at up to 2.45 meters per second (around 5.5 miles per hour), which seems useful to know, just in case things go all Black Mirror on us.
