  1. Hmmm, in this video it looks like the current Odaiba GUNDAN already can ‘move,’ and it is shaking his head, “No.” about an upgrade.

  2. How about “challenging” the dream of useful robots all over Japan? Instead we have VR wanking machines, million dollar robots that can hardly do more than kancho, and still the rest of the world buying into the Japanese have all these crazy robots mentality…

  4. It’s not 1982 anymore… You can build this kind of stuff with otc parts in few weeks.

    Hydraulics: alibaba.com/ made in china
    Sensors: the phidget lineup
    Guidance: ardupilot

    It should be nothing more than a high-school team graduation project…

  5. Here’s the real “Gundam Challenger” sitting a a field in Fukushima, land-of-nuclear-plant-meltdowns.

    I was on a field trip ♫ and it was pretty nice to see this: the Kazami Mizuho Fukushima’s Gundam-chan.  Behind the Gundam is an unattended vegetable stand that he is protecting.
