Battle of the Robots: Eagle Prime vs Kuratas


Two years ago, Megabots, Inc. of the United States of America created a gigantic mechanised and piloted robot (there’s a person inside!). They then challenged Suidobashi Heavy Industries of Japan, maker of the robot Kuratas, to a robot duel. Kuratas was the only other mechanised piloted robot that Megabots knew about. The Kuratas engineers accepted the challenge on the condition that the duel had to involve actual combat skills, not just firepower. 

The two groups made their robots better, made them better able to attack and to defend themselves. They finally had a showdown in a warehouse last week. Here’s a clip of the Megabots robot, Eagle Prime, against Kuratas! p.s. look out for the surprise drone from Kuratas!

OK this is interesting but why is this important? Well, these kinds of robots could be used in our defence systems as well. This could reduce the number of human soldiers required to go into combat. Take a look to see what I mean…
