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

  • Added:  6 months ago
  • 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).

    Relax.. This thing doesn't have a power pack. Its presently tethered to a high voltage source. Even if it were to have a high capacity Li-ion based battery pack, it would not last more than a few steps with the controller moving around his hands so much.

    North Korea shoots warning shots and test ww2 weapons of mass destruction. Meanwhile in South Korea builds a super badass robot capable of fucking any dictator in the ass with no problems of getting to him.

    Not bad for an advanced prototype... They still got the thing hooked up to a generator though. Needs some kind of fuel cell. Fission engine would be impractical at this stage... And dangerous.

    But these are shit compared to the ones we have been seeing for years now from boston dynamics. They walk, run, use items if they want big, all they need is to scale it up. But most important they can get themselves up when they fall.

    I love it. Of course there are major limitations that come from material strength and the source of power, but even with current technology this is very impressive. I could see this decades from now being amazing, as mobile and fast as the robots from Avatar.

    what's with people making robots and walkers with two legs it seems impractical four legs or three would be good

    at least don't do it with feet wheels would be much better. handle the robot from boston dynamics seems very efficient at what
    it does with wheels

    tell me what you guys think
