Cheetah was pretty good too, it's a tethered version of the Wildcat, but it can run at something like 30MPH.



Cool demo of Atlas.

That company is doing some great work , I think they also make petman.
Another great company is be bionic . They are exclusively making cyborg limbs and I've got to say that the prothetics are are moving so much like a organic arm that's it's scary lol.
