Do you think we'll get to a real Titanfall situation in 100 years?
I've been watching a lot of Titanfall footage lately (don't have a rig powerful enough to play it or a Xbox console) and have really been inspired by it. Human warfare has to advance sooner or later and large mechs powered by pilots seem a logical progression to building a better humanity equipped to take new lands from unknown foes.
Obviously current robots are not close to becoming like the towering lead spitting steel machines depicted in various videogames (Hawken, Titanfall, Mech Warrior 2), but the field is promising.
What are the thoughts of The Verge's science forum members on this subject?
UPDATE: I decided to write a post about this exact situation: http://bookntech.botangle.com/titanfall-in-real-life/
