Share

Recently humanity made another step towards the era in which we all have remote-controlled giant machines. This became possible thanks to a team of engineers from Japan, who simply wanted to bring to reality an anime fantasy.

The team that calls itself Suidobashi Heavy Industry managed to come up with a robot that is 12 feet, 5-inch tall, weights 5 tons and is named Vaudeville.

The robot is equipped with Microsoft Kinect sensor technology and can be controlled with the help of a smartphone.

Currently the mechanism is in the development stage and the team plans to do a number of improvements in it.

In the near future, the developers also plan to launch the robot onto the market.

Check out the video below to see the giant machine in action.
