Some more photos of the new Kurotas manned robot, unveiled today by Suidobashi Heavy Industry in Tokyo.
The 13-foot super robot is fitted with a weapons system, including a gatling gun capable of shooting 6,000 BB bullets a minute, which fires when the pilot smiles.
Kuratas can be controlled either through the one-man cockpit or from the outside using any smartphone connected to the 3G network. A miniature version of the Kuratas can also be controlled via iPhone. The robot, which is set will go on sale for £900,000, has around 30 hydraulic joints.
As it is made to order the style conscious buyer will not have to worry about sticking to the grey exterior - it comes in 16 colours, including black and pink, and for an extra £60 they will sort you out with a cup holder.
Kuratas is 13ft tall and weighs four tons – not including the pilot. The four wheeled legs ensures that it is easy to transport and the pilot will be able to drive it at a top speed of just under 6.5 mph.
Marvel releases ‘Thor: The Dark World’ synopsis: Thor, meet Malekith
Marvel’s “Thor: The Dark World” continues the big-screen adventures of Thor, the Mighty Avenger, as he battles to save Earth and all the Nine Realms from a shadowy enemy that predates the universe itself. In the aftermath of Marvel’s “Thor” and Marvel’s “The Avengers,” Thor fights to restore order across the cosmos…but an ancient race led by the vengeful Malekith returns to plunge the universe back into darkness. Faced with an enemy that even Odin and Asgard cannot withstand, Thor must embark on his most perilous and personal journey yet, one that will reunite him with Jane Foster and force him to sacrifice everything to save us all.
Sadly, Loki (Tom Hiddleston) will also be back, albeit in a smaller role. This news is disappointing, since Hiddleston’s conflicted take on the God of Mischief has been the series’ most interesting aspect.
I screamed early morning at work with this sad news. Monday Greens and Blues. Sigh……
Love this picture :3
