Have you ever dreamed about riding a robot? Japanese robotics expert Wataru Yoshizaki of Suidobashi Heavy Industry and artist Kogoru Kurata have made it come true, introducing to you ‘KURATAS’, a robot that weighs about 4 tons. According to them, anyone can easily operate the robot. You can sit in its cockpit operating the touch panel. Even without boarding you can use your smart phone to control it via 3G networks. ‘KURATAS’ is equipped with a gun which is able to unleash 6,000 airsoft BB bullets a minute and its automatic alignment system helps lock the enemy. The gun will fire the BB bullets once the pilot smiles. Don’t worry. Its weapons are safe for humans.
