Comment: Implementation Fail (Score 1, Insightful) 90

If this is an implementation of a cheetah's running locomotion, it is a complete fail.
- When running, a cheetah's spine flexes. Not this robot.
- When running, a cheetah's hind legs land in front of its forelegs. Not this robot.
- When running, a cheetah's legs land with a full pacing stagger, ie left first then right. The feet on this robot land simultaneously.

Check out a real cheetah running. It's like they didn't do any research at all.
