A team of Swiss researchers have developed what they call a “cheetah-cub robot” that mimics the movements of a cat. While not quite as agile as a real cat, this four-legged prototype robot is quite impressive.

The researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology in Lausanne reportedly plan on using it for search and rescue missions.

It seems somewhat similar to DARPA’s robot which broke the land speed record for legged robots last year.
