South Korea Super Train

South Korea could soon have some transportation that moves close to the speed of sound! The Korean Railroad Research Insititute are working on their own hyper-loop esque train that could travel at 621mph or 1,000kph and will be ready in the near future.

The train could move travelers between Seoul and Busan a trip that takes about 50mins by plane or over 5hours on public transport in just half hour, the train can go so fast as there isn’t any friction!

Compared to the Hyperloop which travels at speeds up to 800mph (1,300km/h) this train has a bit of work to do to catch up. However it seems the South Korean train could be ready before the Hyperloop, so it remains to be seen which one is better!

South Korean robotics firm Hankook Mirae Technology have created a really cool manned giant robot called Method-2! Weighing in at 1.5 tons the machine has drawn comparisons with the Amplified Mobility Platform suit in blockbuster Avatar and is built to work in extreme hazardous areas where humans cannot go or construction sites and even military purposes.

It stands at 13 Feet tall and took only 12months to get to where it is today and if rumours are to believed is acting as a warning to North Korea and Kim Jong-Un – potentially appearing at the North/South Korean border.

However as cool as this looks and sounds the robot is very young in development and can only take very small steps due to it having balance and power problems.

Hanbook plan to have the final version of Method-2 ready for potential buyers by the end of 2017 and is expected to sell for around £6.8 million.
