....it you SMILE to fire the guns!?!?! what the hell!?!?! talk about crating crazy people

does anyone really see this going anywhere though? Like I dont see the military using these, they are too big and would not be able to get over any kind of terrain, civilians? too big, doesnt go fast enough and not useful enough to be used in place of a car

maybe I could see a few slightly smaller ones being employed in something like a warehouse to replace a forklift but thats about it

I thinking its more of just a fancy toy for people with a lot of money to spend on, nothing more at this point. I think we are still a few years out from a more practical design.

I guess for a military or industrial purpose. The idea probably won't go much farther than this I'm pretty sure though, it seems like it'd be a little too costly for most militaries and I don't think it would ever be more cost effective than a forklift or other modern heavy equipment. Then again I've seen a good waste of a few millions already in the airforce so meh.

i dont think the cost would really matter as far as the military goes, but in order to make them effective because they would make such large targets you would really have to make them impervious to tank shells and air to ground missiles.

and then once you did that someone would just make a larger tank shell or missile and you would be back to square one.

on the battlefield they would most closely replace a tank so i guess the big question would be, what would they do better than a tank?

If it were a lot smaller, more like an iron man suit i could see a purpose there for individual soldiers but sofar, i really dont see how these would fit into the modern military

Don't worry guys, I'm building an Iron Man suit. It will tear this thing apart.
