The Seoul-based Korea Future Technology company has conducted walking tests for the 4 meter tall, 1.5 ton robot. The machine, resembling those appearing in the Avatar movie, is controlled by a pilot, sitting inside, and repeats his actions.

When the wright brothers flew their first airplane it only flew for 24 seconds. Now we are trying to go to mars. Give us another 20 yr n well have our full functioning mech. Tanks will be obsolete.

put wider hips on it so it can walk properly.

how can we expect it to carry a giant cannon gun an giant melee weapons if its feet are too close together and it has no balance.

not a war bot yet.

It's pretty much a more advanced, bipedal, and slightly smaller version of the American Megabot, especially in looks.

D.Va ?

Author Neur0n911 ( ago)
It looks cool, but from an engineering standpoint, it could use some work. Too much use of metals when lighter materials would suffice. Metallic hands almost guarantees it can't touch any part of the chassis or cockpit without damaging it. As for being survivable in dangerous environments... well, no that really doesn't deserve commentary.

Next phase, slapping a Minigun and some rockets on it and going for a field trip to the DMZ. It will seriously scare the shit out of the North Korean border guards.

you could put guns ect. on this but the movement is to slow to be an effective ground combat unit. would be great for heavy lifting and other non combative duties as is. That's if it can run on its own power for a decent amount of time and what it's capabilities are as far as how much weight it can lift or push. without knowing it's physical capabilities and it's can and can nots, it's purely speculation from just watching this video.

Author Desert Viper ( ago)
I can see these being used for the military in certain applications. these are far from combat ready
