The days of seeing a robot as something slow and methodical that you can outrun are soon to be over.

A video fromToyota R&D show its latest robot offering resisting a push and running you down at 7 kilometers per hour - that's 100m in just under a minute.

The model, which gives Honda's Asimo a run for its money (sorry we couldn't resist) isn't due to be commercially released as yet, but shows just where the robot industry is going.

You should probably start to expect the robot 100m to be announced in the next couple of months.
