Futuristic Korean Technology Brings the Movie ‘Avatar’ to Life

The Seoul-based company Korea Future Technology has conducted walking tests for a 4 meter, 1.5 ton robot called METHOD-1. The machine, which resembles those which appeared in the movie Avatar, is controlled by a pilot who sits inside; it repeats his actions.

The video was posted on social media on Sunday by Russian 3D modelling designer Vitaly Bulgarov, who is involved in the project.

Giant humanoid combat robots (sometimes called ‘mechs’) are a popular weapon in anime and role-playing computer games. However, Bulgarov says his robot can be used to solve real world problems. And even though it has not been decided where the robot is going to work, it seems like it already has its fans!
