Kuratas, is 12 feet tall and weighs five tons. The robot is modeled to be a human shaped tank with a head, two movable arms, and a four-wheel diesel engine platform that lets the bot travel up to 6.2 miles per hour. It is can be used as an exoskeleton and controlled via joystick from a command chair, or operated remotely via a 3G smartphone or Kinect.
The robot’s purpose is still puzzling. Suidobashi claims the units are customizable. The unit could operate a squirt gun like a fire fighter, boast a camouflage painted body, or grasp a mop and a cleaner like home cleaning robot.
Most notably, Kuratas can be armed with a multi-rocket launcher that fires plastic rockets filled with compressed water or two Gattling cannons that can shoot a about 6,000 plastic BBs per minute
Kuratas currently carries a roughly 100 million Yen price tag (that's around $1,353,500 at current exchange rates). Suidobashi says the robot will be available to the general public for order on their online site when the project is completed.
