We typically imagine robots looking like humans, but there’s a real advantage to other “form factors” that mimic pack animals.

For example, check out this new robot that MIT just made: a mini cheetah robot, the first four-legged robot to do a backflip.

At only 20 pounds the limber quadruped can bend and swing its legs wide, enabling it to walk either right side up or upside down. More practically, the robot can also trot over uneven terrain about twice as fast as an average person’s walking speed.
