Japan Has Built a Bloody Massive Gundam Robot
Japan’s Gundam Factory Yokohama is now the proud owner of a fucking massive Gundam robot. It’s over 18-meters tall, weighs 25 tonnes, and — after years of painstaking work putting the thing together — it’s now in testing mode.
The model is based on the hugely popular 1970s anime series Mobile Suit Gundam. It was due to become the Factory’s centerpiece on October 1 but its official unveiling has been pushed back thanks to coronavirus. For now, a testing video of the robot taking a knee and moving its arms and fingers around will have to suffice.
According to The Guardian, the robot took six years to make, ensuring each limb met various weight restrictions so it would move seamlessly and, assumedly, not fall apart and crush anyone in close proximity.
