To paraphrase Denita TwoDragons..."Chop the man’s legs, glue him to the chair, add a helmet, body armour and a…lightsaber. Also remove his arms." ...Add some chainguns in the chair arms, rip-off and install the gyro balancers from a Segway, add a six-pack holder on the sides and this baby will be rockin'!

Now they are just two steps away from creating giant legs and adding chainguns to the chair and we will officially see military mechs.

Throw in the brain from the robot that dynamically balances itself and who knows what they could do.
