If you have around $1 million lying around spare, you could live out your childhood dream of rampaging around in a Kuratas mech suit.
The 500kg suit was developed by Suidobashi Heavy Industry. It can be piloted from the cockpit or via a 3G-connected smartphone or tablet. It is an automatic, four-wheel drive vehicle with a top speed of around 10kph.
$1 million will get you the suit itself, but there are some parts that are sold separately, just like every other toy we wanted as kids. However, it does come with a BB gattling gun that fires around 6,000 bullets a minute.
There is currently only one model, which has been in development since 2010, listed on the Japanese version of Amazon. And, if you needed any more convincing that this would be a wise investment, the company released a video that shows the suit in action and how it is controlled.
