A group of Japanese geeks, who call themselves Suidobashi Heavy Industry, built a life-size Mecha 3.8 m high and 4.5 tons. Clear the way please, or be flattened like a pancake!
Before anything else, it may be necessary to remind you what a Mecha is. It is a giant robot in which a human being takes place to pilot it. One of the most famous is Goldorak, led by Actarus.
Another no less famous is the Imperial AT-AT Walker in Star Wars, Empire Strikes Back. Or the one piloted by Sigourney Weaver in the movie Aliens.
The group of little geniuses who developed this metal monster hopes to complete its prototype soon and market it worldwide. However, let's be reassured, they wish to equip their Meches with rifles... with... water (phew!).

The Mecha works with an Xbox Kinect controller that tracks the movements of the human head and body, and a Smartphone that interprets and sends movement commands to the robot's limbs.
When are we gonna see Mech fighting in a giant ring?
