  • It would be a great idea to implement AI to learn the movements and mannerisms of different users. The AI could also help to make most of the similar movements adapt and overcome quicker. Such as knowing how to step without dragging dirt and better ways to stabilize the cockpit as to not cause them too much fatigue

  • Maybe i'm wrong but adjusting the seat to match the mech leg position would help. The legs are ape like (moving using both front and rear extension) positioned while James is nearly seated. He should be positioned more like on a motorbike, imho it would help a lot letting the brain "wire" the motions of arms and legs to the mech ones. The actual positioning sounds better for a biped mech whicim i think, it will take much more time to be perfected.

I wonder if using something like that you can develop a program that would assist with the motion of the machine to help operators to use it more easily. This thing can have some really nice uses in civil engineering.
