The Method-2 robot, which seems to be straight out of a science fiction movie, is 13 feet high and weighs more than a ton. Seoul-based robotics company Hankook Mirae Technology’s Method-2 robot can be controlled by a human pilot using arm gestures. The firm is developing the robot with Vitaly Bulgarov, who was a robot consultant for “Transformers: Age of Extinction.”Chung Sung-Jun/Getty Images.
