This week the American company MegaBots Inc (a robotics research organization) revealed the Mark II which is the country's first fully functional, giant, piloted robot. Exciting stuff, eh?
But, what's even more exciting is that they've challenged Japanese robot maker Suidobashi Heavy Industry to a battle considering MegaBots completed Mark right on their tail. So, in classic American fashion, the robot makers won't rest until they know whose is better, has bigger guns, and will be victorious in a fight to death.
