Japanese at it again, building totally pointless yet totally awesome robots.
Obviously none of the weapons work, but I wouldn't be surprised if we see this tech adapted for military use.
Website wasn't working for me.

Why would you build a mech suit and give it wheels?

Fuking poverty mechs.

Two-leg locomotion is the only way to go.

It's a diversion so you don't notice the jet packs at the back.

I'm guessing a bipedal mech would require a much more expensive and complex hydraulic system and move about 10 times as slow. But I'm no engineer so what the fuk do I know?

this isnt new...saw a thing on TV a while ago about about a exo/robo-suit that helped you lift like thousands of pounds. the only problem was powering it. so until we get that cold fusion or iron man heart battery thing, its pointless.
