Should we develop mecha (giant fighting robots)? A few have been made but they are quite pathetic.

As I mentioned in your cloning topic, I think a remote controlled robot army would be much better then a human one. I suppose you'd have to have some human controlled units in with the mix, so yeah; bring on the giant fighting robot suits!

I love how it is the Japanese who seem to be doing the most in robotics, life imitating art?
I am voting for Innomen because of his intelligence, common sense, humility and the fact that Juggle appears to listen to him. Any other Presidential style would have a large sub-section of the site up in arms. If I was President I would destroy the site though elitism, others would let it run riot. Innomen represents a middle way that works, neither draconian nor anarchic and that is the only way things can work. Plus he does it all without ego trips.

Actually that's a really good point. In an arms race like this, traditional countries of strength might be less strong. Who better to take over the world with such technology and efficiency in mass production than the Japanese? They could easily beat the crap out of North Korea, when there's an army of mechanized Samurai warriors slaughtering all those starving 13 y.o.'s it's kind of a game changer.

China's economy is now larger than Japans. :P

At any rate mecha always seemed fun but horribly ineffective for what is essentially relegation to street patrol duty. Any other function would be conceivably out performed by drones.

Humans are always cheaper than mechs... And a human pilot may be cheaper and better than an Artificial intelligence, or even remote control(Jamming).

In any case, yes, i agree that the future is robotics. This would greatly help in, for exampl, space, where it is more dangerous to send a human out than a robot. But most of the mechs that you are thinking about(Bipedal and the likes) are absurd. It would be better if the mech imitated Insects. And instead of giant ones, it woulbe better if they were smaller. More cost effective that way.

god forbid no
mecha means even more destruction and havoc waged in wars. Why can't humans simply stop developing these weapons and work out a way to have peace without violence.
BE HAPPY!! =D
you are beautiful, don't let anyone tell you you're not
you're 100X more beautiful when you smile, not that you need it

Sure, and fire can be used to burn people and buildlings to the ground. But that doesnt mean we cant use fire for Good, like cooking food or keeping us warm.

Mecha can be used for good things as well as bad things. Thats the cost of progress. Do you know how many houses are being powered by nuclear reactors?
