A goliath South Korean-constructed kept an eye on robot that strolls like a human yet makes the ground shake under its weight has made its first child strides.
Composed by a veteran of sci-fi blockbusters, the four-meter-tall (13-foot), 1.5 ton Method-2 towers over a room on the edges of Seoul.
The lumbering human-like creation looks to some extent like the military robots featuring in the film “Symbol”.
It is guaranteed as a world first by its makers at Hankook Mirae Technology, a South Korean mechanical autonomy organization, where around 30 specialists were working diligently leading beginning tests Tuesday evening.
“Our robot is the world’s initially kept an eye on bipedal robot and is worked to work in outrageous unsafe regions where people can’t go (unprotected),” said organization director Yang Jin-Ho.
A pilot sitting inside the robot’s middle makes appendage developments which are emulated by Method-2, whose metal arms each weigh 130 kilograms (286 pounds).
The robot, more than double the span of a tall man, is heavy to the point that it shakes the ground when it makes a stride with an uproarious buzzing of engines.
Yang, who imagined as an offspring of building his own robot, said he has contributed 242 billion won ($200 million) in the venture since 2014 to “enliven what just appeared to be conceivable in motion pictures and kid’s shows”.
Building the mammoth robot was a test for the specialists – the greater part of them in their mid and late 30s – as its extraordinary scale implied they don’t had anything to allude to, said one who declined to be named.
As such, it stays hazy how the robot will be utilized. Technique 2 is considered more to be a proving ground for different advances that will permit the makers to assemble any sort and size of robot in future.
While its huge size has snatched media consideration, the makers of Method-2 say the venture’s center accomplishment is the innovation they created and improved en route.
“All that we have been adapting so far on this robot can be connected to take care of true issues,” said fashioner Vitaly Bulgarov on his Facebook page.
He has already chipped away at film arrangement, for example, Transformers, Robocop and Terminator.
Yang said they have officially gotten request from businesses extending from assembling and development to excitement.
There have even been inquiries regarding its conceivable sending along the intensely invigorated Demilitarized Zone with North Korea.
Be that as it may, the robot, fastened by a power link and still somewhat unstable on its feet, is a long way from wrapped up. More work is required on its adjust and power frameworks, as per its makers.
“The robot is one year old so it is making infant strides,” Yang said.
“Much the same as people, it will have the capacity to move all the more unreservedly in the following couple of years.”
He said the robot will be prepared available to be purchased before the end of 2017 at a cost of around 10 billion won (Approximately Rs 56.4 crores)
