Robots, or all other artificial intelligence devices have always been a subject to be pursued. Take for example the movie, I, Robot, where robots are used as servants. This new technology, designed by Japanese artist Kogoro Kurata, is no different.
The 13-foot-tall Kuratas robot can be controlled via remote, or its owner can choose to pilot the robot. The robot is programmed to do many things such as doing janitorial duties, acting as a ranger in the jungle and comes with different parts such as a radio unit or shield for additional charges.
The robotic device weighs more than 4 tons and the pilot can control him through a cockpit located at the top of the robot with gaming-style controls. However, it can also be controlled by any mobile device with 3G internet access. The robot sells for USD 1, 353, 500, so it may be some time before security companies can utilize this technology.
