Sakakibara Kikai‘s newest robot suit, the Kid’s Walker Cyclops, weighs 800 pounds and is 7 feet tall. Developed for children, the cockpit opens up to reveal a ladder so they can climb up and operate it.
The suit is controlled by moving handles inside. It has a drill and a claw on the end of its arms and has wheels under its feet for gliding around. The robot suit aims to fulfill the dreams of all children who want to be (or want to control) a robot.
Wired reports that the bright green Kid’s Walker Cyclops runs off rechargable batteries and is available for nearly ¥2m ($20,000) or can also be rented out for birthday parties and other special occasions. You can check out the awesome robot suit being tested out in the video below:
