That just made me wonder how much money and time those Japanese guys spent on making that thing.

It's cool to see a real machine inspired by manga, movie special effects, etc. Maybe one day the real world technology will approach what we see in the movies but I don't think it will be in my lifetime.

He's prob right. That thing is pathetic. Looks like its made of plastic. I bet a pebble could penetrate it. Not to mention, its legs are worthless. It's clear running on small treads under its feet. Piece of crap.

You clearly weren't looking closely. That is either sheetmetal steel or another metal alloy body.

True it likely has treads for movement however please enlighten everybody of what Mechanized machine you have built or invented recently. I'm sure if you've done better we would all love to see it.


Working so, we will learn history as a tree knows it; we will climb into shapes printed in the seed; we will become time made visible, years made fragrant; we will make of concentric memory a stem of praise; we will inhabit daylight at a trees own speed; we will be travelers who remain, patriots to this ground.
