Almost a historical event, which was prepared for two years, will still take place. The first in a history duel of two giant robotic gladiators with pilots inside. Not to death and not in front of the jubilant crowd – the spectacle promises to be contradictory.
American company MegaBots Inc. challenged his Japanese colleagues from Suidobashi Heavy Industry, resulting in the emergence of two monstrodalnyh cars. Under the star-striped flag stands robot Eagle Prime , the country of the rising sun will represent the model Kuratas. Armament and characteristics of the fighters were left to the creators’ discretion, putting only one condition: not to break through the metal, but to damage it. Yet there is a living person inside.
A duel, duel or show, as you will not call it, will be held on October 17 of this year, somewhere in the Japanese outback, on an abandoned industrial site. No spectators, only representatives of teams and judges. The condition of victory is a knockdown, the withdrawal of the opponent’s technique out of order, and not murder or destruction. And it is unlikely that it will be spectacular.
The fact is that real big robots differ from cartoons not for the better – heavy, clumsy, with a funny and inefficient imitation of combat weapons. An action-packed battle with lightning strikes inherent in small combat robots can not be expected. And so the organizers decided to show the edited video of the battle, cutting scenes, than to hold everything in front of disappointed spectators. But that does not mean that the fight will not be fair!
