Another example of how science fiction can one day become fact. The Kuratas robot is created by Kogoro Kurata and is piloted by a person. Since being placed on the Suidobashi Heavy Industry’s website for a price of 1.35 Million dollars per robot they have received 3,000 orders. Makes one wonder if the future of warfare might go the way of the visions of Japanese writers pictures fighting wars with huge human piloted robot mechas. The following two videos from YouTube, through Animenews Network show the Kuratas in action. Christmas present maybe!
