A headless robot dubbed "Cheetah" has set a new world speed record, according to its owners.
The US Defence Advanced Research Projects Agency said the four-legged machine achieved 29km/h on a laboratory treadmill.
The agency said the previous land speed record by a legged robot was 21km/h.

Starfish-inspired 'soft' robot squeezes under obstacles

A "soft" robot inspired by squid and starfish can crawl, undulate, and squeeze under obstacles.
Built by a team at Harvard University, this robot has several advantages over those with treads, wheels and rigid parts - which have a limited repertoire of movements and may have trouble navigating difficult terrain.

Honda's All-new ASIMO Prepares and Serves Refreshments

Honda has developed a highly functional compact multi-fingered hand, which has a tactile sensor and a force sensor imbedded on the palm and in each finger, respectively, and which acts to control each finger independently. Combined with the object recognition technology based on visual and tactile senses, this multi-fingered hand enables the all-new ASIMO to perform tasks with dexterity, such as picking up a glass bottle and twisting off the cap, or holding a soft paper cup to pour a liquid without squishing it.

A University of Leeds researcher has drawn inspiration from biology to build a giant robotic worm that can wiggle its way around obstacles.
The super-sized 'worm-bot' is modelled on the C. elegans nematode, a tiny free-living worm that uses an ultra-simple nervous system to control the way that it moves.
