As the new year has already started in some parts of the world - Oz-based site admin Burn was the first to notice 2017 arriving in our community - we have news of another new arrival in robotic form: actual robots (well, robotic suits) from a South Korean robotics group, designed for emergency response. As CNN reports, designers used cues from Transformers and Terminator live action movie franchises, though there are some glimpses of Aliens, Avatar and more mech-suits out there.

Check out the embedded clip below, and prepare to welcome our new robot overlords in 2017!

It's based on the suit from Avatar, the guy that designed it only worked on the Transformers movies.

Cameron directed films like Aliens 2 and Avatar. I don't recall any Terminator looking like this. Not even in "Salvation"

This doesn't look transformers inspired at all. Avatar? Absolutely.. transformers? Nope.

Love it :D . Disaster response and construction is something practical I could see these being used for somewhere down the road, and I'm all for it.

Let's keep guns and rocket launchers off of these though. There's already far to many ways to kill people as is.

Walking is still a ways off, but battling is coming very soon.



And yes, this is a real thing, USA vs. Japan.

Yet another instance of science fiction turning into science reality. For better or for worse.
