Dailymail: A Japanese electronics company has unveiled a 13ft super-robot which can be controlled by an iPhone. But be careful with the jokes if you are on the phone to the pilot as the robot, made by Suidobashi Heavy Industry in Tokyo, brings a whole new meaning to ‘trigger-happy’.
‘Kuratas’ is fitted with a futuristic weapons system, including a gatling gun capable of shooting 6,000 BB bullets a minute, which fires when the pilot smiles.
Apparently this thing is a real street-legal car that is also a fucking robot and can be controlled by the pilot in the cockpit or by an iPhone. Leave it to the Japs to create the real-life Optimus Prime before America. We’re too busy discouraging science and innovation over here because fat kids feel left out or something and it’s “exclusionary”. Meanwhile the Japs are running laps around us. At least we don’t have 100-foot fucking dinosaur dragons destroying our cities though.
