    U.S. Government Creates Its Very Own Decepticon

    Pretty cool



    U.S. Government Creates Its Very Own Decepticon


    DARPA really loved Transformers 2 because they made their own Ravage.


    by Jim Vejvoda
    SEPTEMBER 7, 2012






    The U.S. government's DARPA (Defense Advanced Research Project Agency) has created a cat-like robot capable of outrunning Olympic champion and fastest man alive Usain Bolt.

    The robot, developed and tested by Boston Dynamics, is dubbed the Cheetah, which we really hope stands for Chasing Hunting Exterminating Eradicating Terminating Android Holy s**t machine.

    "DARPA states on its website that it hopes to use the Cheetah robot in emergency responses, humanitarian missions and other defense missions," according to CBS News.

    As you can see from the DARPA video below, its design is reminiscent of the cat-like Decepticon named Ravage from Transformers.





    Huge thanks to my awesome friend Finalreaper for the sig!!

    Just slightly faster than Usain Bolt. Not as cool, though.

    Despite its decepticon appearance, has its affiliation been confirmed? Autobots have pets too right? Lol!
