This Giant Fighting Robot Picks Up Cars with Ease

Shelby Rogers

For a little over a year, rumors have been swirling that there will be an epic showdown between fighting robots from Japan and the US. After a year of smack talking, we've yet to have an actual fight. However, we've still managed to get some incredible creations from this robotics arms race.

In this video, the MegaBots Inc. team based out of the US shows off its impressive pickup skills. It lifts a four-door vehicle with ease a la Bane picking up Batman in The Dark Knight Rises.

We know Japan's Kuratas robot will be significantly larger than the average sedan, this could still make for one interesting bout. That is assuming, of course, that the fight actually happens.
