Giant Robot Duel: USA vs Japan

Two years ago, the U.S. company Megabots challenged Suidobashi Heavy Industry to a giant robot battle. The Japanese company agreed to pit their robots against the Americans. It took some time to get the robots ready, but the time finally came. The matchups were large, loud, slow, and not at all safe, so the battles were recorded, and then the resulting video was streamed last night. The first fight, between the robots Iron Glory and Kuratas, begins at about seven minutes in. The second one, between Eagle Prime and Kuratas, begins at 13 minutes.

The robots go at each other with battering rams, claws, chainsaws, drones, and guns. For a publicity stunt, this is pretty cool. It highlights the difference between giant robots in fiction, which always work perfectly unless an enemy defeats them, and in real life, where anything could go wrong at any minute. -via Digg
