‘Velocirobot’ : Robotic dinosaur which can faster than Usain Bolt
Researchers at Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology in Daejeon have built a robotic dinosaur which has a top speed is 28.5mph (46km/h). The robot which has been named Velocirobot has two nimble legs and a tail for balance and could theoretically out-run Olympian Usain Bolt.
The inspiration to create a speedy dinosaur robot is based on the now extinct velociraptor, which lived between 75 and 71 million years ago.
The robot has two strong legs that can propel it to speeds of 28.5mph (46km/h) which is just fast enough to beat Usain Bolt in a race. The world’s fastest runner, Usain Bolt, can run at 27.4mph.
