From YouTube Description:

'Raptor is a fast-running biped robot developed by MSC Lab, KAIST. It has two under-actuated legs and a tail inspired by velociraptors. The Raptor robot runs at a speed of 46 km/h on a treadmill with off-board power. Tail-assisted pitch control provides stability over high obstacles.

Move over Big Dog, Here Comes Cheetah Robot That Runs 28.3 mph:

I wonder how long it will be until these things are "keeping us safe" patrolling the streets? 13.gif

It has some staggering implications if fully developed. If controlled by AI, the prospects are unsettling.

"Perceiving their actions as a threat, AMEE breaks Burchenal's ribs and pursues the others before retreating.
Gallagher tells the others she has gone into military mode, and intends to kill them all one by one.
She wounded Burchenal instead of killing him because she has been programmed with knowledge of the old guerrilla tactic that a wounded man will slow the enemy down more than a dead one, because a dead teammate can be abandoned but effort has to be expended to transport a wounded teammate

this is your future uhhuh.gif
