Moving on to steel, he had to devise a hydraulics system that would provide precisely the right leverage and range of movement. He settled on a complex network of cables and hydraulic cylinders that can make the mecha raise its arms, bend its knees, and even do a sit-up.

I fail to see the fear. People own guns. This thing doesn't even have weapons (yet).

As for it being awesome I think somebody already took my line. Something about buckets It's got nothing on my Mech designs. You know other than the being built part.

Damn he used hydraulics. Hydraulics are sensitive in a battle field and are open to leaking and shell fragments. Now I feel the way to go would be servos. But I have no idea the power they take or the power they put out (and if they make them big enough and can be made big enough). Still mostly I'm just filled with envy about his awesome mecha vs my book filled with blueprints that will never get made.

BIG RED....SHOW TIME!!!!!!!!
Yeah I think he may just be a hero of mine. Sounds pretty freaking sweet

Edit. He so is my hero now.
"but acknowledges that right now they’re best suited to entertainment. The first application he has in mind: mecha-vs.-mecha battles, demolition-derby style."
**** YEAH!!!!!!!!!

That makes me really excited. I've always wanted to see a Gundam in a city. If only for size reference. (I know how tall they are from books etc, but it's not the same).

See this does protect it from shell fragments etc but it doesn't protect it from leaking under stress. Hydraulics are something I just don't quite trust enough. They're the best thing out there, but not combat ready to me. They brought up all the short comings with hydraulics in a combat situation on modern marvels : Hydraulics.

Maybe this guy will start a company called Cyberdyne Systems Corporation and send robots back in time. Wait, isn't that the plot of Terminator?
