Run, Cheetah, run!

See a cheetah run (about 50-60 mph), captured at 1200 frames per second!

What an amazing beast.
I'm almost most impressed by the fact that its head is going virtually in straight line, you could almost balance a cup of coffee on its head while it runs full tilt! Dang, that's precision.
Don't miss the making-of video. They had to build a 400 feet dolley track, high-precision to avoid wobbles.

That's indeed a beautiful piece of footage. Although, I enjoyed the making-of video even more than the actual result.

Google should team up with Amazon, and use their Mechanical Turk service to solve these CAPTCHAs. That would provide a better user experience for us blog commenters.
