I was somewhat surprised to see that this didn't get posted here at the time of me posting this, because I mean surely someone here must have heard about this, but here it is.

After watching the recent season of BattleBots here:

And watching shows like Gundam or Robotech of the sort, I'm looking forward to seeing this in a year, as well as what potential paths this could lead to.

The Kuratas will probably win because it moves much faster and probably turns faster too. Plus, if they both have an extra year to improve their designs, it means that the Kuratas will be able to pack one hell of a punch with its pile-bunker or other similar melee weapons.

 

The only thing the American mech has over the Kuratas is its firepower. But if it can't turn as quickly as the Kuratas or follow it, that won't amount to anything.


Defeat is just temporary. I will return, and I will beat you eventually!

Well, It'd be interesting to see. I'd put my money on the Kuratas, as it seems the more mobile of the two, and while the MkII is big and well armored, armor means nothing in Melee combat.

 

Anyway, hopefully the MkII will be have its mobility improved, otherwise the only outcome I see is Kuratas winning in a melee fight.

The Kuratas is definitely the better looking of the two but I'd have to give it to the MkII. Having two people being able to focus on one function makes for better response time.

Now if the Kuratas gets a functioning Close Combat system... it's gonna turn the MkII out like a word that rhymes with booker.

I can't wait to be able to pilot my own machine like these. Why hasn't the Giant Robot Fighting League been created yet? Good grief...
Was trying to think of something to put here... Couldn't think of anything... Nope, nothing.

It depends on the technology involved.

 

Any technology that can be applied to a bipedal robot can be applied to tanks, jet planes, and helio ships, so adding a mess of moving parts into the equation (like legs and arms) is a complication.

 

However, just what capabilities are we talking about when it comes to super metals?  Can a robot made of super metal weighing a couple hundred tons with complicated parts like moving arms and legs strike the ground at terminal velocity with absolutely no threat to it's structure?  If the answer is yes, then complicated war machines designed by mad men might be a requirement to dominate the future battle field.

 

However, keep in mind that any new technology could be applied to much more practical machines, namely tanks and jet planes.

unless I'm missing something all it would take is one paintball to the Karatas' camera.

Unless of course the guy decides to add some kind of mini windshield wiper on the surface.

have you ever played paintball? it takes a strong solvent to clean a glass surface, the paint is very thick and oily... Wouldn't that be kinda BS anyway, assuming the fight is supposed to reflect a real world scenario?

Hmm, I could imagine military equipment having a pressurized hose blasting debris off of the lens in a high-tech super-monster ultra-robot target acquisition cameras and lenses system.

 

I would design a robot with many auxiliary cameras facing in a multitude of directions, all with shutters, wipers, and steam-blasting nozzles ensuring that all lenses operate optimally at all times.

 

Power for these systems would be from an armored fuel cell of pure compressed hydrogen outputting far more than enough power to supply everything from wipers to force fields.  The world of power is a world of knowledge. Knowledge is not power; knowing power is power.

My point is the paintball represents a bullet, a windshield wiper doesn't sound legal to me. From what i can see ("unless I'm missing something") it only has the one camera. How this meshes with the fact that the americans would be getting drenched in shrapnel with there design, I don't know....

thing is it doesn't just clean right off. Its not like normal water based paint.

This was a thing? I dunno, but it woulda been funny if they decided to cancel it at the last minute.

 

''I think it got cancelled, search a bit for it.''

Priceless, but lemme look it up myself for a bit...

Ah, found it.

... Hmm? What? Oh, right, the robot battle, totally forgot.

This is the latest news I found.

So... Nothing, lol I bet they ran off with the kickstarter money

Oh, yeah, this.

I didn't link any of that chainsaw bit, because it either didn't have a date, or IIRC, it was at an earlier date prior to the news article/home site about their sex I mean killer robot.

Are you saying they might damage their own robot, or that that's about everything the saw could do, or possibly that the saw might put an end to the 'amazing upcoming robot spectacle!' by tearing important wiring from Japan's Karate-whatever and so disabling it?

I'm saying thats the extent of its destructive potential.
