#科技头条#【这不是科幻电影!美国战斗机器人将亮相巨型机器人赛场】美国机器人公司MegaBots打造了一款高约5米,重12吨,拥有430马力的巨型战斗机器人Eagle Prime,人类操纵者可坐在机器人的头部,控制其运动,仿佛还原了科幻小说和电影中常出现的战斗机器人。虽然庞大,但它的运动速度绝对比你想象得快。这个机器人将在本月举行的世界首次巨型机器人比赛中挑战日本的机器人Kurata,早前中国公司GREATMETAL也表示希望带巨型机器人“猴王”参赛。

Team USA's incredible 16ft fighting megabot is unveiled ahead of its showdown with Japanese droid in the world's first giant robot battle

At first glance, you might mistake this enormous robot for a character from the latest Transformers blockbuster.
But the 16 foot (five metre) tall machine is a robot called Eagle Prime that is ready to take on Japan in the Megabots Giant Robot Dual league.
An incredible video has been released which shows the Eagle Prime in action ahead of the dual - which will be the world's first giant robot battle - taking place this month.

The robot has been created by San Francisco-based MegaBots, who set up the Giant Robot Dual league in 2015.
On its website, MegaBots said: 'MegaBots uses cutting-edge robotics technology to create the giant piloted fighting robots of science fiction, videogames and movies.
'These robots fight in epic-scale arena combat the likes of which the world has never seen before.'
The Eagle Prime stands at 16 feet (five metres tall), weighs 12 tons, and has 430 horsepower.
A human operator sits within the 'head' of the humanoid robot, controlling its movements.
Despite its enormous size, Eagle Prime is faster than you might think.

In the video, the enormous robot can be seen opening giant garage doors, quickly manouvering corners, demolishing piles of barrels and even blasting targets with its paintball cannon.
MegaBots said: 'As the robots battle, armour panels shear off and litter the field, smoke and sparks pour out of the chassis, massive robotic limbs tear off, and robots crumple to the ground until only one is left standing.'

In 2015, MegaBots challenged Japan to a giant robot dual, and a team of experts from the country quickly accepted.

Japan's robot is called Kurata.
In 2015, the team revealed an early version of the robot, that included a gun capable of shooting 6,000 BB bullets a minute.
But since, the Japanese team has not released any information or images of the machine that will take part in the dual against the US.

In May, Chinese robotics company GREATMETAL also announced that it too was joining the battle, unveiling its massive 'Monkey King' robot to take on the US and Japan.
The quadrupedal, single-seat machine takes on the form of a monkey and weighs more than 8,000 pounds (four tonnes) – and a video has suggested that the robot is equipped with a rotating head.

its creator, Shiqian Sun, said it took about two months to complete to this point, New Atlas reported.
Although China is gearing up for battle, MegaBots is still deciding whether to allow the Monkey King to join the competition.
A specific date for the battle has not yet announced, but MegaBots says it will be this month.
