South Korea makes 13 foot tall humanoid manned mech

A 13-foot tall 1.5-ton “Method-2,” mech is the brainchild of South Korean robotics company Hankook Mirae Technology

“Our robot is the world’s first manned bipedal robot and is built to work in extreme hazardous areas where humans cannot go (unprotected),” said company chairman Yang Jin-Ho.

While its enormous size has grabbed media attention, the creators of Method-2 say the project’s core achievement is the technology they developed and enhanced along the way.

“Everything we have been learning so far on this robot can be applied to solve real-world problems,” said designer Vitaly Bulgarov on his Facebook page.
