Here’s something you don’t see everyday: a “fast moving quadrupedal robot” that’s capable of running at approx. 2 body lengths/sec. The TomCat is primarily used by researchers to investigate the “principles of the neurocontrol of movement”. Unfortunately, they are only available in limited quantities to the research community. Video clip after the jump.

“TomCat’s architecture is completly open, allowing easy addition of sensors, and computational elements.”
