Country: USA
Company: MegaBots Inc.
Robot: Mark 2
Pilot Capacity: 2

Country: Japan
Company: Suidobashi Heavy Industry
Robot: Kurata
Pilot Capacity: 1

Still putting my money on Japan. C'mon, the Mark 2 looks like it's built for long-range combat while the Kurata's going to get melee mods. Granted, the Mark 2 does look like it could hold up against melee attacks, but if they don't have anything outside of long-range weaponry, they're not going to last that long. Plus, 2-pilot coordination against 1 pilot? I dunno, maybe 2 heads could be better than one.

Probably sooner than you think, Bilderberg 2015 had AI at the top of its agenda. That combined with the attendees list:

Boston Dynamics has been developing some creepy hardware for Google, and that's just what they allow the public to see.

 

4/16/2015 Edit:

And there you have it...

Apparently Suidobashi insisted that MegaBots be the one to host the fight (since MegaBots did challenge Suidobashi first). So MegaBots has been spending the past year collecting enough funds to set everything up and only just started building their robot for the fight this year.

https://www.facebook...pe=3&permPage=1

The fight is supposed to happen this month, but it seems it'll be delayed until MegaBots finishes making their robot. That's why there hasn't been an official fight date set yet. :\ They better have this fight, otherwise they're going to make the giant robot industry look like a joke.

Reminds me of that old show "Robot Wars" back in the 90/00's. I watched every season of that back then. I miss TV shows like that.

Classy.

 

I wonder if one of the new battletech/MechWarrior games will come out around then.

I figured the MegaBots robot would be pretty bad, but didn't expect the Suidobashi robot to not be all that much better either.

I will laugh if China joins in on this fight. Such a chaotic mix of Transformers and Gundam.

The Jap one seems a bit like a model robot on rollerskates, similar to the toy robots I had when I was 5 with the little wheels underneath

Wouldn't mind seeing real-life Tachikomas. Versatile special ops mobile suits.

Gen 1 robot fights may be lackluster in action, but everything has to start somewhere. Future robot fighters can look back on this and see how far we came.

And in an ironic twist, South Korea beats everyone with the first pilot-able bipedal robot.

Better step it up, Japan.

These wont be real fun until they're bipedal and as fast and nimble as a human, able to fly, and allowed to use real ammo and missiles! Those will be truly exciting matches!
