Mabel, The Running Robot

The video here shows Mabel the robot running.  When you run you’re feet actually leave the ground and as you can see in this video, so do Mabel’s feet.  I can’t imagine this is easy to accomplish in a robot.

Mabel is a collaboration between Jessy W Grizzle at the University of Michigan and the Robotics Institute at Carnegie Mellon. Mabel can run at a top speed of 6.8 miles an hour.
