According to Hankook Mirae Method V2 is the world's first manned robots, which walks on two legs. The arms of the Mechs are controlled from the cockpit. Inside are two smaller control arms, which transmit the movements of the pilot on the large robot arms. While Method V2 takes his first steps and dances something on the spot, but he is unmanned – apparently the stable movement of a half ton truck is thus still a challenge. So the manufacturer demonstrates at least, that his robot can also be controlled remotely. The design of Method V2 comes from Vitaly Bulgarov, which with its Mech designs for films such as Transformers and RoboCop has made a name. He also provided the video, which documents the first attempt at walking the Mechs.
