I'd never thought I'd actually live to see someone try and actually make this but I guess with what's coming out now I shouldn't be surprised, if they work on it more they could actually get it moving just like in the movies.

Isn't that a few years old?
EDIT: yeah it is(2006)
They are in production of iron-man like suits that actually work

Yeah, the iron man thing is nuts. They had a guy do lat pull downs with one arm(full weight) for three hours without stopping. He only quit too because he was bored

Looks like you can... you know... push it over pretty easily.

Another feat is the tumbler from Batman Begins. It's an actual working prototype, complete with hardened armor and shocks to actually do the jump stunts.

Man, no matter how many times I've watched this, I still can't get over how fearsome it looks. Until it starts moving.



Then it's hilarious.

Maybe we will have pod racers next.

You also gotta love the Gatling gun attached to it's right side.

A comment on the page says that you can rent these things...:ninja:

Well if it had wheels it would be much better for true battles though. It would be more stable so aiming with the guns would be easier.

But to think anyone acctualy built this is hilerius regardless.

They've actually done better than that I seem to recall. At least I read an article somewhere about either a six or eight legged walking vehicle a college student produced. (I could however be wrong about it being a vehicle, I only remember that I was impressed by how large it was, as I didn't think that it was actually possible to create such a thing in real life.)

How could anyone be intimidated by that? It's fucking pathetic. I was watching and I was like "This is going to be intense!" then it started moving and I just laughed. A small child with a baseball bat could do more damage than that thing.

What's wrong with wheels?

As far as I could tell, it did use wheels. it sure as hell didn't realy seem to "lift" its legs.

I mean, why not just mount the cockpit on a bunch of wheels. It'd be a like a tank only with a lot more glass.

Give it a few years, and sooner or later we'll be having secret organizations that put 13 year old kids in them to genetically bond.

That's just a big toy, I wouldn't consider it anything less.

Hell the recoil alone from those guns, if they were real guns, would be enough to send it toppling over backwards.

Not an update, and been posted here before, but this shows what real robotics are capable of now. The really amazing thing about it is how it recovers when set off balance.

This, on the other hand, is only scary knowing that anime fanbois want to fuck it and call it their gf.
