I asked myself the question, in a universe where mecha are used for primarily for military-industrial applications, how did the technology
get to that point?
Sure, some routes for technical advancement are funded purely by governments, but think of the racing sport’s influence on the
So I asked the question, what if mecha became a dominant technology because of sports applications?
In which kind of sports could mecha thrive? There have previously been pugilistic representations of robots, but I deemed these as too
