Meet the Kuratas

By: An Nguyen, Reporter

When ever you think of giant mechs fighting each other, you would expect for that kind of stuff to be in the movies or in animations. But now it has become reality with the help of artist Kogoro Kurata (after whom the suit is named), and roboticist Wataru Yoshizaki. This Mech weighs approximately 4,500 kg, and is approximately 4 meters high. It can be controlled by one person and the pilot would sit in the body of the Kuratas with the controls in front of them and it can also be control outside of the Mech. The Kuratas can be “armed” with weapons like a BB gun. Each Kuratas cost about $1,353,500 in US dollars.
