Description
Check out this Japanese battle mech-styled machine. Inspired by the mecha anime and toys from his childhood, Kogoro Kurata set out to create this 4-ton, 13-foot tall robot. [Kogoro Kurata, Kuratas Robot Designer]: "The robots we saw in our generation were always big, always had people riding them. So I don't think those have much meaning in the real world. But it was really my dream to ride in one of those giant robots, and I think that it's a kind of Japanese culture. I kept thinking that it's something that Japanese had to do." The creator showed off the Kuratas Robot at the National Museum of Emerging Science and Innovation in Tokyo. It is human controlled; from the cockpit, a driver can move the robot's arms and drive it up to 6.2 miles per hour. The battle mech is just a prototype, but Kurata's website is already taking orders. People have options for weapons, shields, and even an iPhone holder. This prototype was armed with Gatling cannons that can shoot BBs. But don't break out your wallet just yet. The Kurata Robot starts at around $1.3 million, and options can send it much higher. [Wataru Yoshizaki, Kuratas Programmer]: "If indeed giant robots and cars are being sold at the same price, then I would, of course, choose the giant robot. At this point however, with the current price buying one Kuratas is still too much for me." While Kurata didn't say how many have put money down, the robot has piqued many people's interest.
