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

  • Published on Dec 29, 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).

    Could be the first step toward a "battle bot". These would be used by the military in wars instead of tanks and would have an onboard power supply and carry a variety of weapons from rotary machine guns to missile launchers and flame throwers. They would have to be made highly bullet resistant. The problem is that to get all of that, the cost might be several times higher than a conventional tank!
