My problem with the AMP design is the same problem I had with the matrix mechs. Why does it need a HUGE window? Or in the matrix case NO ARMOR OR WINDOW. Look at the Elementals from Battletech/Mechwarrior. Little windows close to the users face not a huge target to shoot through.
yah but if the "window" is 6" away from your face it can be smaller to keep the same visability. Unlike the amps where it was like 3' away making for a big window that arrows can penetrate
I don't think I can agree with that. There is a lot of active research out there right now into this kind of technology. Will it be the next 10 years? maybe not but my lifetime I hope will be longer then that. Even if it takes 50 years. I hope I'd still be kicking then. In my opinion I think we will have the larger variety before we get the household kind that ASIMO represents. Industrial Mechs used in forestry, construction, or whatever the come up with are safer in the early years in a controlled environment like that. Household environments require to much control and safety measure.
I'm sure engineering courses would be a good start.
