Armed, 6-Ton Robots For Sale To Civilians For Over $1 Million

The robot’s arms, wheels, and viewing movements are controlled from a leather seat and a “next-generation” V-Sido robot operating system. The Kuratas drives around at a speed of 6 miles per hour. It is diesel-powered and can also be controlled remotely through a 3G-network system that is routed through a “pilotless head.”
