Robot Runs Like A Human

This very cool robot by Toyota has perfect balance, which enables it to run and withstand mild force, just like a human.

The humanoid robot can run up to speeds of 7kmh, which isn’t too fast, but it’s balance at that speed is pretty special.

The robot takes a step every 340ms and has no contact with the ground for 100ms of that.

The only downside, is that the only function of this robot is it’s ability to run and balance. I’d like to see it push back!
