Korea’s pilot controlled robot

Korean robotics company Hankook Mirae Technology started building the Method Robot last year with 30 engineers outside of Seoul. After investing $200M to date, the Method 2 is able to walk and manipulate its arms by the onboard pilot.

Designed by Vitaly Bulgarov, who has worked on the films like Transformers, Robocop and Terminator, the robot was hinted may be used to help restore the Fukushima disaster area, and serve other industrial purposes, and isn’t expected to contribute to an apocalyptic robot war. Method is expected to be available by the end of 2017, costing around $8M.
