And this new featurette of Pacific Rim gives us a better understanding of how the giant robots are piloted by their human controllers:

“When an alien attack threatens the Earth’s existence, giant robots piloted by humans are deployed to fight off the menace.”

So to pilot one of those giant robots, they need two interlinked human brains (that is two pilots who fuse their minds together), because one brain alone would become overloaded by the amount of data. That’s fine.

But I thought those robots were remote controlled drones and it actually looks like the pilots are inside the robots… If they have the technology to build such awesome robots why can’t they control them remotely? It would be much safer for the pilots!

Release Date: July 12, 2013.
