Cassie the Robot Runs a 5K

Cassie is a walking and running robot inspired by the biomechanics of the ostrich. The robot from Agility Robotics looks a bit like an ostrich, too, if the bird could operate without a head. Cassie harnesses machine learning to negotiate a route and stay on track. In this video, see how she runs a 5K course in 53 minutes on a single battery charge. She’s no Olympic sprinter, but my battery would have run down much sooner. -via Laughing Squid
