I posted this in the "Uchuu no Senshi" thread, but it really deserves its own...

Kogoro Kurata, the same guy who built the 1/1 scale Scopedog is at it again. He's almost done with a 4-meter robot based on his own original design. The kicker is that this time it WORKS. You will be able to actually drive the thing.

All that thing needs is a pair of arms and a coat of green paint, and you've got a "Robonoid" from Miyazaki's "Future Boy Conan."

Valor pleases you, Crom, so grant me one request, grant me ROBONOID! And if you do not listen, then the hell with you!

The robot is going to be controlled by the V-Sido software, which is designed for controlling humanoid robots. The Kuratas will be the largest thing controlled by the software to date.

That green robot in the demo is so cool.
