South Korea: World's first giant manned robot takes its first steps

  • Опубликовано: 29 дек 2016
  • The world’s first giant, manned robot “Method-2” took some of it’s first steps in the Gunpo studio of Hankook Mirae Technology company near Seoul, Thursday.
    The 3,9m (13ft) Method-2 robot responds to the actions of its handler who is seated in a central cockpit, walking like a human and moving its 130kg (286lbs) robot arms and fingers.
    Around 30 engineers have been testing the mammoth machine and lead designer Vitaly Bulgarov drew inspiration from his previous work on the fantasy films, Transformers and Terminator. Since 2014 the company have invested about $200 million (€191.3 million) in the robot’s production and development and estimate it could be on sale by the end of 2017 at a price of around $8,3 million (€7,9 million).

    I wouldn't call this the first Giant robot, first one I have seen, was someone's personal made (Saw it many years ago), The Landwalker, probably the weakest in terms of ability, but still first I seen, which you can find two videos (if not more) on RUclip, if I recall, made by a Japanese dude. Few years back, I saw Kuratas, which is so far the most advanced I have seen with ability, many videos of that, a Japanese built and even mass produced (But costs about 2 million dollars to buy one... Not cheap). America has 3, Megabot Mk1 (Don't recall seeing that in use at all), Megabot Mk2 (Can see it have its butt handed to it twice), and Mk3, best of the Megabots. Just saw a video about China having one (Looks very similar to Kuratas set up, but has 2 Pilots instead of 1), the XX21. Sounds like that might be in the next Mecha battle, Depending on its size, might be able to take Megabot Mk3, or have an entertaining fight with Kuratas. Though, this one, Method 2, has the best leg work compared to the others. Megabots have legs, but their feet are basically a base with wheels. Kuratas and XX21 have 4 legs with wheels. So Personally, I think Method two has the best leg work (Don't suggest it going against the others in a Mecha battle anytime soon, at least unless they make the balance even better). Kinda exciting with multiple mechas coming around. I personally love Mechas, so it is something I look forward to since I was little (Why I was excited about Landwalker, truly the lamest of them, but you take the little sets where you can). So if your interested in that, I'd check them all out. There is a fight between the Japanese and the U.S. Mechas. Nothing super dangerous (Besides the fact it is tons of metal clashing).

      Oh, almost forgot, China also has one called The Monkey King... Not sure to much on that one, only found one video on that... Not much besides a look at the head and its hands moving forward.

    If they weaponize this, it could possibly be as good, if not better than a tank. (Based on mobility)

    Uuuummmmm.... ya this ain’t the first one. The concept of this has been in existence and the working model has been made before. The problem before was the restriction and bulkiness of tech. At best this might be the first attempt in the past maybe 10-15 years, and even that I have a hard time believing.

    The problem is:
    - Battery to make this works
    - He's too slow. Making him a very very easy target.
    To transform him in a combat tripulated robot they'll have do make several updates.
    But we're just in the beginning to work on robotic tecnology. That is amazing!

    It's not really taking it's first steps since it's still "hanging". And it will take another few years to make it walk and Ballance by itself. Still nice Mech tech! Bit too slow for implementing in war/combat you just hit and run with tank or any other heavy vehicle... And not sure if it can hide from predator and tomahawk missiles... Anyway nice showoff.
