Seeing that the entire program was largely Kickstarter funded, the let down wasn't really any great surprise, and maybe we will see a more dynamic battle sometime in the future if the proto-sport of sorts survives. But your craving for a real life version of Robot Jox doesn't need to emanate entirely from a fictional place. During the atomic age of the late 1950s and early 1960s, the Pentagon built its own massive manned robot of sorts, and its job was far more dangerous than crunching steel with another of its kind.The real-world giant mecha emerged from the nuclear powered aircraft program that began shortly after the end of World War II. The idea seems insane today, but back then putting a nuclear react..

  • Jimon Dimon will be trolled relentlessly The first rule of the internet in 2017 is not to say anything bad about Bitcoin. The true believers are all over the internet and I'm pretty sure they're fitted with radio-collars that alert them whenever someone says something bad about Bitcoin.
