'USA MegaBots Team' Takes Aim At Its Own Defense Mech

Yahoo! NZ

Though the USA MegaBots Team we've been obsessively following and recently interviewed is still far away from its epic robot showdown with Japan, they've just entered our favorite development phase: weapons testing. But instead of wooden targets or helpless cars, they turn the $200K mech's weapons on itself! Prudently, the MegaBots opt for a test dummy in the cockpit before they fire up the meanest paintball gun we've seen (with 250Gs of impact force) and call in a concrete wrecking ball to pulverize their precious fighting machine in the name of science.
