PUMA has taken athletic performance to a new level with the creation of BeatBot, a robotic training device that helps pace and push runners to achieve their best. After all, everyone goes faster when there’s something to beat.
The world’s fastest man and PUMA athlete Usain Bolt is featured in this video created by J. Walter Thompson that showcases the new training technology

The self-driving device can be programmed with a time and distance that a runner wants to replicate. BeatBot uses infrared sensors to follow the lines of a track to drive around based on a runner’s customized training program. With a top speed of 44kmh, BeatBot can recreate Bolt’s record-shattering 100m dash, giving runners a chance to experience firsthand just how fast the world’s fastest man can go.
