When kids are watching cartoons, the genre is mostly action in which the protagonist is a hero who saves the day from evil. Some have exoskeleton armored hero/heroine while other save the world by sitting in mega robots and fighting bad guys. Those kids have fantasies of having such zords (as robots are named in Power Rangers) for themselves. Well, your fantasies can now be fulfilled.
Suidobashi Heavy Industry has developed a robot, The KR01 Kuratas Battle Mech which is 13 foot tall, weighs over 4 tons and can move up to a speed of 10 kmph. It runs on diesel fuel. The robot has a built-in seat on which any person can operate the machine. Not only that, but it can also be operated through an iphone.
Furthermore if a damsel in distress needs to be saved, you can operate your robot and become her knight in shining armor (so to speak). The robot is fitted with plastic bottles and Gatling pellet guns shooting 6000 BB bullets per minute which are activated when the pilot smiles.
The robot has been introduced to the public and the inventor of Kuratas has started taking orders from people who want to own the robot. Custom jobs such as varying colours and cup holders in the robot are available. The basic model costs around 1.3 million USD.
