Excited for the robot wars.

As a guy, how can i not be excited by the idea of giant robots battling it out in real life. Japanese electronics company Suidobashi Heavy Industry unveiled its Kurata robot at the Wonder Festival in Chiba, suburban Tokyo on July 29, 2012. U.S.-based robotics company Mega Bots issued the challenge late last month, as it put the finishing touches to its Mark 2 model, America’s first fully-functional, giant piloted robot.

Suidobashi CEO Kogoro Kurata responded, saying, “I’ll fight. Absolutely.” He stated that robots, popularly called mechas in Japan were a source of national pride and that they couldn’t turn down the challenge. Both the teams will get one year to get their robot’s ready for the fight.

At six tons and controlled by two pilots, the Mark 2 fires 3-pound paint cannonballs at speeds of over 100 miles per hour (160 kilometers an hour). While its rival the Kurata is a little lighter, weighing around 4.5 tons and features Gatling guns and a heads up display system. I”m honestly very excited and hope that this doesn’t get called off in the long run and becomes a new form of general entertainment.
