Watch the Giant Robot Duel

Posted by Rampant Coyote on October 18, 2017

My wife laughed at me as I giggled and geeked out over this thing. What can I say? I’ve been a fan of mecha fighting games and anime for a long time. Seeing one for real… even knowing full well the limitations of reality… was awesome. If you missed it, you can catch the┬álong-awaited battle between Suidobashi’s Mecha and TWO of MegaBot’s piloted giant robots on YouTube:

As a side note, I have all kinds of respect for the people who were able to put this together… from just figuring out the logistics for this battle, down to the nuts and bolts of designing a real-world mecha. Thanks for letting me live in a world where this is a thing. ­čÖé

    Whoa. I take it this was a while ago, but I had no idea, and it’s amazing! What won’t people do to make sci-fi a reality. And amazingly, those robots actually work, for all that common sense says they should be totally impractical. Thanks for sharing!
