Diesel Powered MechWarrior brings us one step closer to having gundams

Have you ever wished that you could own a giant robot with weaponry? Watching hours of Gundam Wing probably made you want to suit up and go fight evil on a somewhat regular basis. This was only the dream of a child back then, but now it’s a reality. (You may not want to do the fighting evil part though, as that could get you into trouble with the authorities.)

Suidobashi Heavy Industry has created what they are calling an “art piece” named the Kuratas. This giant stands at about 13 feet tall, and will be unlike any other vehicle you’ve come across. It can only go a little over six miles an hour, but that will surely be improved upon over time. Once you’re sitting in the cockpit, you’ll have access to a touchscreen panel that uses an amazing robotics operating system called V-Sido. You can choose to either manually pilot this mega machine, move it through the master slave function, or on your smartphone. It may cost $1,350,000, but would literally be a fantasy coming to life.

  • Hahaha…that video is hilarious. You can shoot BB pellets by smiling? They call it the Smile Shot? Awesome.

    And it looks like the rocket launcher only launches water bottles, and very inaccurately too. I love it.

    Japanese humor = :)
