Let the Giant Robot Battle Begin!
- Gigantic American and Japanese robots
- Actual robot face-off
- The creators of the American Megabot Mark II challenged Japanese robotics company Suidobashi Heavy Industry for a giant robot battle on a date which is yet to be decided
- Bringing robot fantasies to life, both companies are said to be building multi ton heavy human operated robots for the challenge
To cut it short
Though the challenge was readily accepted by the Suidobashi CEO, he was quick to add sarcasm to the American’s choice of robotic technology. Reports suggest that the two chunks of metal are pretty evenly matched with the MegaBot Mark II expected to be 15 feet tall with a pair of giant tank treads and Suidobashi’s robot reportedly to be 13 feet tall with four swiveling wheels. So here’s to calling all metal nerds to keep their eyes and ears peeled for the date and the venue for the mega event!
