Wow, that was an amazing demonstration. That sphere looks perfect. I wonder how they made it prior to hydroforming.

It is a simple task, because any curved 3D object can be made from flat faces or facets. I see each sphere is welded up from, in this case, only 7 flat sheets of steel. I guess seven is optimum for the size of the explosive charge they are using and the thickness of the steel. Fewer faces would require bigger explosions. More faces would be overkill, as they would need lower charges, but more time and work to assemble.

Those are obviously the metal eggs of huge robots. These are commonly found in manufacturing plants robot breeding grounds and that is how we make more robots for industry. It is known.

Does it make the subject stronger, or is it just cosmetic?
Take my advice, don't listen to me.
