Submission + - MABEL robot runs like a human, stomps like a cylon (extremetech.com)

MrSeb writes: "Researchers at the University of Michigan have successfully crafted a chilling portrayal of what the future surely holds: a running, obstacle-scaling robot. This robot, which is called MABEL (not an acronym), is capable of running at speeds of up to 3.06 meters per second, or 6.8 mph. Physically she is very similar to a human — a heavy torso, and light, springed legs that act as load balancers and shock absorbers — and with a clever feedback system, MABEL even runs like a human, spending 40% of her time three or four inches off the ground."

The opossum is a very sophisticated animal. It doesn't even get up until 5 or 6 PM.
