OK, this is kind of cool - in my mind this image hardly counts for this blog, since the design is more flying drone than robot, but since the fiction is that it's supposed to be an autonomous AI-controlled flying terminator, I guess it fits - but the cool part is that somebody in Italy has built a working version! Talk about proof of concept! It flies, but it hasn't killed anybody. Yet. It's also kind of naked. Check it out:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ct8FhK5l6ZQ©2002 Warner Bros. Pictures
You've read my comments on your Facebook page regarding the video, Peter. No body parts flailing about, no cheers from Lorin. It is cool, though.
I don't think a mech necessarily has to be an anthropomorphic robot; flying or swimming craft, AI or human controlled "power assist" suits can easily fit into the category (my humble opinion - although it's a gray area...)
