That just declined my fear that much more.
...Yeah, for 15,000 bucks and that many hours "wasted", but artisticly well-put...
...Yeah, he`s definately a professional time waster.
BTW, if anyone has ever seen Ghost in the Shell: Stand Alone Complex at all, then Tachikomas as well as Fuchikomas might actually be possible to make, now that I`ve seen a close resemblance in action.
I`ll repeat myself; That was friggin` awesome.
Would be dratin cool though if it were real.
That, or an explosion. The turns need some work though... and it doesn`t look smooth... That`d be fun though. It looks very difficult to run someone over in it.
I saw it atthe midnight preview. For free. She doesnt die you drat nut.
That thing replacing tanks? Losing one leg would drat the whole thing up. Even if it was improved so that it could lose a leg, losing any leg other than the opposite one would drat it up completely. It`s moving parts are all exposed and would be impossible to cover with armor and it would take up ~3 the space as one tank for the same internal capacity. Beyond that look at it`s shape: it`s much higher than a tank. Look at any modern tank, they are built with very low profile. Also, tanks are very stable, as they have a very large area of contact with the ground and have a low center of gravity. With only 8 small contact points and a high center of gravity an "battle spider" would be ill suited for carrying anything heavier than a machine gun. Legs will never replace wheels and treads on the battlefield.
btw, the one on the wild wild west was much bigger (who cares!!!)
wouldnt you just love one with a rocket launcer on the front so you could chase chavs and kill em all
and a muffler.
And it`s just awesome. I want one.
Anyway, that machine (once it gets going) looks fantastic, i need to get one. If it was faster and quieter.
If he has kids, he could also just put the money he spent to build that in an education fund for them.
Or give me a check or cash.
that`s pretty incredible though, if i had one, i`d make it move faster
