How Robots Run (Video)

Mark Remy @ Runner's World posted this crazy video of a Japanese robot that can run 7km/hour. Check it out!

Note the slow motion capture...looks like this robot has a great barefoot running style. Pretty crazy.

  1. Man, that's freaky. Does the robot have both feet off the ground? That's really running!!!

  2. Cool... and totally supports my theories of efficient form. The robot is not heel striking.

  3. Durian is not bad at all, perhaps you would like to share your commentary as a guest?

    now, have you had other varieties?

    Other than "Morn Thang"?

  4. It's movement is so smooth. Looks like a man in a suite, it's so good. Very impressive.

  5. That Robot has better form than me. Did I also see Will Smith in thevideo as well?

  6. I'd like to see the robot running downhill.

  7. Wow! The future is now... That is pretty cool video. Just imagine where we will be in the next few years...
