The giant robot battle of your dreams is actually happening

Mashable 

On Oct. 17, the colossal robots Eagle Prime and Kuratas will meet in a violent duel. In 2015, Megabots Inc. -- a group of U.S. engineers that endeavor to build massive "fighting robots of science fiction, video games and movies" -- challenged the Japanese robot Kuratas, built by Suidobashi Heavy Industries. While both robots are massive hunks of metal, Megabots' Eagle Prime has a size advantage over Kuratas. The 16-foot tall Eagle Prime weighs 24,000 pounds, while Kuratas stands at 13 feet tall and weighs in at 13,000 pounds.
