Not bad, for 1st Generation

05.07.07 | 2 Comments

If anybody knows how to build giant, ass-kicking robots, it’s the Japanese. Now you too can own your very own. It seems that Masaaki Nagumo has built something resembling a AT-ST. It’s 11 feet tall, moves under its own power, and shoots raquetballs using some kind of compressed air system. The suspension system could use a bit of work, but for a 1st generation machine it’s pretty cool! Our military has probably done less after spending a few billion.

Makes me want to run off and play MECHWARRIOR. Looks like a small Dire Wolf.

You’re right: the suspension is pretty bad right now. It seems to skate along on its wheels more than actually walk. But it’s a step in the right direction, no pun intended.

I want one.
