Ever been to a tech festival?
TNW Conference won best European Event 2016 for our festival vibe. See what's in store for 2017.
For its trial, MegaBots detached Mark II’s cannononball-gun arm and aimed it back at the robot to see whether the machine’s cabin is sturdy enough to protect its pilot from potentially getting blasted with a giant cannonball to the face.
However, it seems MegaBots will have some more work to do: While the cannonball did little damage to the robot, the test showed the impact was so powerful that it would’ve almost certainly killed a human pilot.
In its second pilot survival test, MegaBots wanted to assess whether its robot can take a heavy blow to the body without injuring the pilot.
To make sure the impact matches the power of its Japanese robo-rival, MegaBots slammed the Mark II with a gigantic wrecking ball – time and time again.
Curious to know what happened next? Head to the video in the section above.
The final showdown is expected to take place in the first season of MegaBots that just premiered yesterday.
