Any child who grew up watching the Power Rangers, Transformers, Pacific Rim or any movie with giant robots have all thought one thing… coooool.
The other thing every child has thought about is having a giant robot or watching giant robots fight each other.
Well that little child in you doesn’t have to imagine it anymore.
The United States have built a robot known as Megabot Mark 2 which is “America’s first fully-functional giant piloted robot”.
Why did they create it? Well, why not?
America immediately challenged Japan to a robot duel,
Japan is famous for making giant machines and they have thousands of animated cartoons about robot machines fighting.
Japan immediately accepted the challenge,
“We can’t let another country win this. Giant robots are Japanese culture,”
And they added
“Come on guys, make it cooler. Just building something huge and putting guns on it and sticking guns on it. It’s super American. We really need melee combat. If we’re going to win this I want to punch them to scrap and knock them down to do it.”
