MegaBots Forced To Scrap Its 'Unsafe' Combat Robot

I can't believe they are going to let a little thing like "getting killed" send them back to the drawing board. What a bunch of wussies! They should just make these things remote controlled, that would solve the pilot death issue. wink

MegaBots -- the US half of a proposed mecha duel -- is scrapping its Mk.II machine after deeming it completely "unsafe for hand-to-hand combat." In "almost" every test, the team discovered that the human operator (buried inside, a little like Shinji from Neon Genesis Evangelion) would have been seriously injured or killed. That's...not good. Now, the crew is working on the Mk.III -- a new robot with a safer cockpit, improved controls and modular arms.
