A Mech has always been either a comic book fantasy or a video game beloved; however it turns out that at least one company believes that there can be a real-world Mech that can slam its robotic legs on Earth.
Working with Vitaly Bulgarov, who is known for his fantastic concept designs and artistic innovations, a South Korean company called Korea Future Technology is working on a real-life Mech named Method-1. The idea is to build a giant robot that is controlled by a human pilot. Imagine those Sentinel busting robots in Matrix or something along those lines.
The use? Well, it turns out that the company isn’t making Method-1 as a solution to a massive problem, but it is building the mech to see how these giant robots can fit in our world and how they can help out in our problems. The company is effectively doing a study of the suitability of these robots and how different parts of these robots can help us solve issues that we aren’t able to on our own.
So consider the scenario where the robot as a whole is too bulky for a real-world problem, but the arms turn out to be dexterous enough to be used in a factory where the humans can’t directly reach. In that case the upper half of the robot or a modification there off can be used and implemented.
Consider the case of humans required to reach places that they generally can’t. If the legs of the robot are useful enough and controlling them is simple then the lower half can be used in some real-world scenarios.
Imagination is the limit says the developers of these robots and while they are still working on the designs and working towards making Method-1 more useful, they have shown a glimpse of what the robot is capable to do through small video.
