Beware, kaijus, the Earth might be ready to you on -- and this is not fiction! Although we aren't exactly creating Pacific Rim mechas to fight Godzilla-like monsters, scientists want you to know that we have far more advanced tech than the ones you watch in the movies.
For instance, the simple task of walking isn't rocket science for our present-day bots anymore -- unlike Pacific Rim bots who struggle to even walk without their pilot's careful treadmill guidance. Professor of Computer Science and Engineering at Texas A&M Robin Murphy even says that it would be way easier and more efficient if abilities of the pilot are augmented with an exoskeleton.
Wonder when we'll get our own mechas? Soon, we hope! Read more about it in this link!
