“To be fair, keep in mind that the Cheetah robot runs on a treadmill without wind drag and has an off-board power supply that it does not carry,” admitted Boston Dynamics in a press release. “So [100-meter-dash-record-setting Usain] Bolt is still the superior athlete.”
Boston Dynamics went on to say that they planned to work through all of these hurdles in the next year, so that’s reassuring.
