Any engineers here? What kind of energy would be needed to power heavy robots to be able to do the stuff they are doing in the trailer?
An impossible amount. Massively more than our current technology could ever provide. Current nuclear reactor power provides a nice long source of usable energy, but we still have considerable difficulty with dispersing the energy in the quantities necessary and at the rates necessary. Because it would take incredible instantaneous transfers of a great deal of energy. More than anything we're currently capable of. Not to mention that the idea of building a mech or gundam or whatever, in the form of a bipedal human, is just retarded. Stupidly inefficient. You'd waste a shitload of energy just trying to make it bipedal human like. There are infinitely more efficient forms if we're making a giant badass mech. And it definitely wouldn't be powered by two people at the same time. Derp.
