Giant Robot Battle

This was trending on my Facebook feed today, a great many websites around the world are talking about this.

No, I don’t mean the 1MDB shit. It is basically political wayang kulit (puppet show) involving a lot of money and something out of my control. I mean the USA vs Japan Giant Robot challenge.

Basically this is the chronology of what happened:

  • Japanese company created a giant man operatedΒ fighting robot (and began selling it to the rich).
  • American company created a giant man operated fighting robot.
  • American challenges Japanese to a giant robot duel to see whose cock is bigger.

  • Japanese responds to the challenge in an even more condescending way.

So basically, some time next year, we will be seeing the actual metal clashing metal showdown.

I don’t know about you, but you know I’m a guy, and guys generally love robots killing each other. I’m excited by the prospects of this real life Real Steel. I hope both sides (Suidobashi Heavy Industries and Megabots Inc) follow through with the big talking and actually make this giant robot fight happen.

I’m so excited that I totally forgot what I was planning to write today

  1. Transformers coming to life. Finally. Hopefully it’s broadcast live all around the world. Would love to see it and would get out of work to see it if I have too πŸ˜€

    • Not Transformers. More like Real Steel (that movie with Hugh Jackman in it). If it gets enough publicity, I think it will get that live broadcast! So I’m helping to spread the word πŸ˜€

  2. You are getting OLD. So excited until forgotten what to write. Wait till you have kids. So excited until you forgotten where you place them πŸ˜›

  3. I’m not into bots and yet, I clicked on the first video. And then I had to click on the second one. Something is clearly very wrong here. I DO like robots! πŸ˜€ The Japanese one looks better, don’t you think? Yes, I am interested to see them fight. You update OK? πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€ πŸ˜€

    • You should watch Real Steel then, if you have not. I think you will love that movie then! πŸ˜€

  4. Who says this a boy’s thing? I don’t see them in my FB but from my wife’s mouth almost daily. She is now the Master Trainer for CMU’s programs in Robotics and Compu-Sci. So naturally she is obsessed with Robots too and never missed a single movie showing the steels. I heard about this USA vs Japan Giant Robot Challenge.

    • Is there anything that your wife cannot do or do not know??? She is like a genius who is well versed in anything and everything!

  5. If only they fight like the robot in Real Steel…that’ll be really cool! And I hope they don’t use the easy way out…fire power! I want to see hand to hand combat….KAPOW!!! πŸ˜€

    • That’s what Kurata-san said too, he wants a melee (hand to hand) combat so that he can beat the scrap out of the American bot. I don’t think the American bot can do much more than shooting now, waiting to see how they respond to this. I personally agree with Kurata-san. I want a Real Steel type of fight too πŸ˜€

  6. Me jakun, no such news feed in my FB… Maybe my friends jakun too, so they don’t these kinda stuffs in FB.. Mostly 8 stuffs like politics like you mentioned *yawn*

      • Where did this come from? What has giant robots fight got to do with helping people with money? You mean we should not be intrigued with spending a bunch of money to build robots and instead use the money to help more people? I’m sorry but I don’t think there is any correlation here.

        And, if the only thing people with money is allowed to do is to spend all the money they have to help the poor, that would be the dumbest thing ever, because then there would be no rich people and everyone in the world would be poor. Rich people are not necessarily evil. It just means they work harder/smarter to acquire wealth compared to others. In fact, the biggest philanthropists in the world are the super rich. It is ridiculous to try to link every expensive hobbies that people do with statements like “better use the money to help the poor”. If they work hard to earn their money, it is their rights to spend it whichever way that they want.

        Heck if I am rich, I would of course do my part in helping the poor, but I sure as well would want to also get myself fast cars and big robots that look cool!

  7. Hah, I watched the two videos but could not understand Japanese in the response video so just read the English subtitles. I am just curious how the two big metal robots will fight each other. Please write a post about the fight when it happens because most likely I wouldn’t know about it unless you do.

    • I will definitely write about it when it happens! Heck, I will even try my best to attend it!

  8. something like Transformers huh??

    and you were so excited that you wrote one whole complete post for this!!! how nice, i am still scratching head what to write next~~ πŸ˜€

    • More like Real Steel. [Sounds like you have not watched that movie, please do it, it is very cool!]
