So... Anyone want to loan me $1.5 Million? It'd go to a good cause.

So what do you get for the money? Kuratas has over 30 hydraulic joints that allow it to freely move its arms, legs, and torso. It can fire water bottle rockets and fireworks, and its 6,000 round-per-minute BB gattling guns are controlled with the pilot’s smile; part of Yoshizaki’s V-Shido (read like bushido, as in "way of the samurai") control system. In order to get around, the four-legged mech uses ordinary wheels, but the Suidobashi team wants to get it walking in order to navigate uneven terrain.
Videos and more in the full article. What are you waiting for? Go watch a pseudo-kinda-mech-thing (ok, more like a Heavy Gear, but...) that actually works.
