A group of researchers has created a new remote controlled robot that is called the OutRunner. The robot gets its name from the fact that it can run very quickly with a top speed of 20 miles per hour. The team behind the bot says that it could be one of the fastest all terrain robots in the world.

The robot is able to run on a single charge for up to two hours. Dimensions for the robot are under 2-feet tall and it weighs about three pounds. It has three legs on each side of the central motor and has its own processing unit.

 

 

OutRunner was created by a team from Robotics Unlimited and was designed and built-in Florida. The legs of the robot spin in time so that the feet of the bot are rotated in time with only one on the ground at a time.
