I’ve already mentioned MegaBots here and their dream of creating giant robots. Here we see yet another innovation comes to life in competition. A company called Korea Future Technology has developed a new bipedal robot called METHOD-1 partly using concept art provided by Vitaly Bulgarov, who has also designed concept art for StarCraft II, Warcraft and Transformers. The robots legs and arms are capable of moving close to how humans move their limbs and the chest contains the cockpit. Interestingly they seem to be doing this purely because they wanted to design a robot. Of course the purposes will arise soon enough from construction to warfare but the future for giant robots not only looks revived but thriving.
