For a cool $1-million, Kuratas, the Gundam-inspired rideable robot by Suidobashi Heavy Industry, can now be yours. This machine is equipped with a gatling gun capable of shooting 6,000 BB bullets a minute, which starts firing when the pilot smiles. It can be controlled either through the one-man cockpit or with a data-enabled smartphone. Unfortunately, as of right now, it only ships to the Kanto region of Japan, and is advertised as a kit, which means you should have a Japanese-reading engineer on-hand to help you piece things together. If you’re extremely wealthy and want one at all costs, these two caveats will be trivial. Continue reading for more images of the actual robot and a link to its product page.
The robot has approximately 30 hydraulic joints which the pilot moves using motion control. According to a Suidobashi Heavy Industry representative: “Automatic alignment allows you to lock on your enemy target. Kuratas will not allow any targets to escape. With the alignment set appropriately the system will fire BBs when the pilot smiles.” Product page.
