Tiny “galinstan” robots can run faster than a cheetah (reduced)

mao you in the. Scientists at Johannes Kepler University (JKU) have created flexible, steerable robots that can run, swim and jump at high speeds. In tests, the robots reached a speed of 70 BL/s (body lengths per second). These results are striking because even a cheetah (the fastest land animal on Earth) can only run …
