Right. So. Japanese robotics expert Wataru Yoshizaki of Suidobashi Heavy Industry and artist Kogoru Kurata have gone and made a giant robot that you can jump inside then drive and fight other robots or disobedient human slaves or enemies or unruly xenomorphs ala Ellen Ripley. 

The KURATAS measures in at 4m-high (13 feet), 3m-wide, 4m-long and weighs in at approx  4,500kg (4-tons) which is about the same size as a fucking elephant. It can either be piloted by hopping into the cockpit or via your Iphone and will set you back a measly $2.3 million US smackaroos. Oh, and it also shoots stuff too with the airsoft BB rounds apparently safe for humans and may not "hit the targets". 

Look, we were pretty excited when we first read about the giant robot that shoots stuff and can be piloted by humans or their iPhones. Like, it's pretty much every kids dream to have one of those...BUUUUUUTTTTT, it's also the dream of evil geniuses and the realising of numerous Sci-Fi movie villains in one go. And the whole safe ammo thing doesn't ease the creeping worries of robot armies destroying the world.
