“A Japanese electronics company has unveiled a 13ft super-robot which can be controlled by an iPhone. But be careful with the jokes if you are on the phone to the pilot as the robot, made by Suidobashi Heavy Industry in Tokyo, brings a whole new meaning to “trigger-happy”. “Kuratas” is fitted with a futuristic weapons system, including a gatling gun capable of shooting 6,000 BB bullets a minute, which fires when the pilot smiles. Kuratas, made by Suidobashi Heavy Industry, can be controlled either through the one-man cockpit or from the outside using any smartphone connected to the 3G network. The robot, which is set will go on sale for US$1.27 million, has around 30 hydraulic joints which the pilot moves using motion control. 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. - sunbeam
Engineers Wataru Yoshizaki and Kogoro Kurata were saluted in front of Kuratas together with their pilot Anna when they showcased the robot at the Wonder Festival in Chiba, suburban Tokyo. The team have been working on the robot since 2010. The company also released a video where very attractive Anna gives step by step instructions of how to operate the Kuratas. The video reminds the viewer of the security instructions on an airplane with Anna taking on the role as futuristic airhostess. If you are not the piloting kind of millionaire, Kuratas can be operated using what Suidobashi calls the “Master-Slave system” where you control the robot’s movements from outside using any device with a 3G network such as an iPhone. 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”. Realising that there may be a flaw with this system of opening fire, the video warns the pilot against smiling too much whilst operating the Kuratas weaponry. Kurayas 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”. – Sara Malm via DailyMail.co.uk - sunbeam
