The Giant Kuratas Battle Mech


Meet the Kuratas robot mecha, the million dollar robot which shoots when you smile and is controlled by iPhone.


A Japanese electronics company, Suidobashi Heavy Industry has unleashed their newest creation 2 days ago – the KR01 Kuratas Battle Mech. The Kuratas robot was unveiled in Japan today will go on sale for £900,000.oo.

Kuratas can be controlled by motion sensor technology in the one-man cockpit or through any phone with a 3G connection. The MasterSlave control system allows you to move a tiny version of the Kuratas – with an iPhone strapped to its back – to get the life-sized one to follow your bidding. Aside from the auto targeting feature, it is easy for those looking for sweet vengeance – the robot’s heavy artillery fires 6,000 bullet per minute when the pilot smiles.

It’s a 13 foot tall and sporting some rather menacing hardware, this badass million dollar robo-suit might be the future of mechanized combat, once they set it up to fire live ammo.

Its Engineers, Wataru Yoshizaki, Kogoro Kurata and Pilot Anna received salutations as they showcased the robot at the Wonder Festival in Chiba, suburban Tokyo earlier today.  They have been working on Kuratas since 2010. The company also released a video (see video below) 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.’


Female ‘pilot’ Anna.
