That is awesome! Maybe 25 years from now we'll have very life like robotic pets.

I'm skeptical how this can be classed as "running", especially considering that the video description says "[....] most of the power Cheetah used was to swing its legs fast enough, not to propel itself forward".
Still really cool, I've always loved Boston Dynamics work. It's worth your time to take a gander around their Youtube channel, they have some very cool robots.
Basically, it shows what the upper limit of the system will be. Kinetic energy is easy enough to generate but how efficient the whole system is will determine the maximum speed achievable before the amount of kinetic energy starts getting wasted and/or starts to overload the system.
Maybe 25 years from now robots will have very robot-like human pets....
