American robotic research company, Megabots, has issued a challenge to Japan’s Suidobashi Heavy Industries.
The CEO and creator, Kogoro Kurata, forcefully remarked that just building something huge and sticking guns on it is super American but what the Japanese company wants is hand-to-hand and metal-on-metal action. “And because we’re American, we’ve added really big guns”.
The US challenge of a Transformers-like giant robot duel has been accepted by the Japanese. “Giant robots are Japanese tradition”, he stated, including that he needed to “punch them to scrap and knock them down”.
“I can not let another country win this”.
It seems that we are about to see two giant robots fight.
Megabots said in a recent interview that unknowingly both teams emulated the styles of mech warriors their countries’ pop culture had been promoted for decades.
While MegaBots haven’t yet agreed to Suidobashi’s new terms, it’d be very un-American to back down from any sort of fight, especially an arms race. The Mk. II also sports twin paintball guns for arms.
If watching giant robots fight to the death sounds like your idea of a good time, then you’re in luck. Understandably, the stipulation made Team United States of America sweat a little.
Suidobashi Heavy Industry is one of the few firms which have successfully developed an ultra-large robot which could easily be employed in a fight dedicated to these marvels of science and technology.
After Mark I was created, an enhanced version turned to be MegaBots Inc.’s pride: MegaBot Mark II.
MegaBot moves around on two giant tank treads, while Kuratas moves courtesy of four swiveling wheels.
Mr Oehrlein said the duel would happen in one year, with the battlefield yet to be determined.
MegaBots co-founder Gui Cavalcanti describes the concept behind the design of the company’s battle mecha, in an interview with Engadget.
