The future, according to films and anime from the 80’s and 90’s, were supposed to be filled with robots that roam the streets, supposedly protecting us but mostly causing mass destruction with its own agenda to kill off the human population from the face of the Earth. Now that we’re smack dab in the middle of that future, we’re thankful that those killing machines don’t exist today, but we’re also disappointed by the lack of robots as well.
Leave it up to the Japanese to create something from films and anime, as they have built a mech warrior that you can actually pilot. The Kuratas is a diesel powered mech warrior that stands 13-feet tall and weighs a massive 4.4 tons. It demands a hefty price tag as well, costing ￥120,000,000 which is roughly $1.2 million USD. So if you’re a multi-millionaire with cash to burn, this mech warrior could be your ultimate bodyguard. Check out the video below to see the Kuratas in action.
