In Design, Post-Apocalyptic, Surreal on August 14, 2012 at 10:30 am

Seeming too good to be true, Suidobashi Heavy Industry has produced the first Kuratas- a 4.4 ton robot frame that is able to house a pilot inside. Produced by artist Kogoro Kurata and robotics expert Wataru Yoshizaki, the mech runs on a diesel engine and is outfitted with a kinect-based movement interface, touchscreen UI and twin BB gatling guns. It is also able to make calls direct from the cockpit and is customisable in various colours. For a hefty price of $1.35 million, this dream machine could be yours.
