Usually, this would just be the stuff of Sci-Fi movies and a select few games, but this here mech is the real deal.
Vitaly Bulgarov is a concept artist who has worked with the likes of Blizzard to produce things like StarCraft and now he’s helping to create a real, functional mech with Korea Future Technology.
Bulgarov has been helping out a company called Korea Future Technology on their latest project, which is called METHOD-1: a big, real, functioning mech. Not a stage prop, not a promotional gimmick, but a serious attempt at working through the early stages of getting one of these things off the screen/comic book pages and into the real world.
This mech isn’t being designed as a solution to real world problems, or as a homage to a Blizzard shooter. Instead, it’s coming at the situation from the other way around: KFT is building a mech to see just what scenarios it could work in, and what parts of its tech are more useful than others (so, say, if the idea of a bipedal robot was crap but those robot arms were useful, then using them somewhere else).
Here are a couple of compilation videos showing the mech waving its arms around and, more importantly, walking:
