MIT Electric Robot Cheetah jumping over obstacles (Video)

The Massachusetts Institute of Technology has just released new footage to youtube on September 15th of a new algorithm that they have developed for the Robotic Cheetah.  The MIT Robotic Cheetah can run up to 10 miles per hour.  The new algorithm allows the Cheetah to jump.  Watch as this Cheetah can now jump over one foot high obstacles.  Most robotic animals up to date have been powered by internal combustion engines, and hydraulic transmissions. MIT shows you that a electric powered robotic animal can run and jump over obstacles and not make all the noise of an internal combustion engine.
