Some more photos of the new Kurotas manned robot, unveiled today by Suidobashi Heavy Industry in Tokyo.
The 13-foot super robot is fitted with a weapons system, including a gatling gun capable of shooting 6,000 BB bullets a minute, which fires when the pilot smiles.
Kuratas can be controlled either through the one-man cockpit or from the outside using any smartphone connected to the 3G network. A miniature version of the Kuratas can also be controlled via iPhone. The robot, which is set will go on sale for £900,000, has around 30 hydraulic joints.
As it is made to order the style conscious buyer will not have to worry about sticking to the grey exterior - it comes in 16 colours, including black and pink, and for an extra £60 they will sort you out with a cup holder.
Kuratas is 13ft tall and weighs four tons – not including the pilot. The four wheeled legs ensures that it is easy to transport and the pilot will be able to drive it at a top speed of just under 6.5 mph.
