MIT Back Flipping Cheetah Robot

Came across this video while screwing around on the internet between classes. And it was too cool not to share with my classes.

Best part was when the students felt sorry for the robot when it got knocked over.

The last 30 seconds are so are clips of cases where the robot didn’t work quite like it was supposed to. Worked really well as a hook to talk about how it’s not really a mistake when your code doesn’t work the first time. You just haven’t found the solution yet.
