If you had a million dollars, what’s the first thing you would buy? If you said, “a 5-ton, 13-foot-tall, 5 mph-capable, wearable robot,” then you’re not only ultra rad, you’re also in luck.
On sale on Amazon Japan is the Kuratas, the invention of Kogoro Kurata, a Japanese blacksmith and founder of the robotics firm Suidobashi Heavy Industry.

Kurata has been refining giant, wearable robots for several years (think “Mobile Suit Gundam” or Mechwarrior), and so is now offering his namesake latest and greatest robot on the net for 120,000,000 yen ($1 million).
In order to operate the robot, the wearer must press a button and then climb inside its cockpit. Perhaps the coolest feature of the Kuratas showcased in years previous is its BB gatling gun, which can shoot 6,000 rounds per minute when triggered by the smile of its pilot — no word yet on whether the Kuratas being sold on Amazon has the feature.

Before you run off and buy the machine, be mindful of some caveats to the Kuratas being sold on Amazon Japan: it doesn’t come with arms, and most importantly, assembly IS required.
