U.S. Army has been Developing Real AT-AT from Empire Strikes Back
Called the “walking truck” or Cybernetic Anthropomorphous Machine (CAM), the walking machine was designed in 1965 as an experimental vehicle for rough terrain
Controlled by a bunch of hydraulic levers mapped to corresponding legs, the CAM and its 11-foot tall legs was capable of traveling at 35-miles per hour, but it had one flaw.
The U.S. Army hoped the CAM would be able to traverse through swampland impassable to ordinary vehicles while carrying loads of a quarter-ton on its back. With the Military’s new focus on exoskeletons & robotics, It’s only a matter of time before we see the real thing(75 Ft High) walking around. It definitely makes you wonder, what else does the U.S. Army have? A mini Death Star? Landspeeders? (You know if its out there Digital Afro will find it.)
