Japan Making Real Life Mechs

We all knew it was going to happen or later but it looks like the future is here now and in Japan.

Japan has always had a fascination with mechs and robots which has prompted the creation of this awesome robot.

Kuratas KR01 is a four metre tall robot that allows a pilot to sit inside and control it from a cockpit where it’s able to reach a top speed of 10kph (6mph). Kuratas is a joint effort between two men, artist Kogoro Kurata and OS developer Wataru Yoshizaki (V-Sido robot), who have also enlisted the aid of Suidobashi Heavy Industries.

It cal also be controlled via remote control by using a 3G enabled device. The mech also has facial recognition software built-in so if it locks onto you, no chance you’re getting away!
