MechWarrior is slowly becoming a reality: a group of American roboticists have challenged a Japanese collective to a giant robot fight, and here is a look at our guy, “Eagle Prime.” Apparently, the event will not be livestreamed because safety is not guaranteed, even for the pilots. MegaBots’ 12-ton, 16-foot robot, which it’s very patriotically calling “Eagle Prime,” has shipped to the as-of-yet undisclosed duel location. The new robot can move quicker and punch faster than the original robot MegaBots built. It has seats for a pilot and a gunner, and features a cannon arm for shooting massive paintballs, and a giant claw for grappling opponents. MegaBots said it’s also built other weapons that can be swapped onto the robot, including a chainsaw and a very large drill.
