The Real deal

Yes, they are connected to T Bars in the back, but it does more than keep them upright. It also supplies fresh hydraulic fluid, as well as power. God knows the power needed to keep those things moving must be massive, and would detract from the body design if it was built in. They aren't doing any Kung Fu in the ring for sure, but it's still pretty bad ass. Thanks to the motion control exo-skeleton, the robots can duck and dodge a little. I know right now it seems a little clunky, but I'm sure as the technology develops a little more, this is going to be one hell of a sport.
The full first episode is online at syfy.com right now. Go watch that fight and tell me it isn't one of the most exciting things you've seen in reality TV in a long time.
