Japan breaks down, will finally start building giant robots. For reals.

I think that I can speak for the rest of the world on this: we were wondering when you guys were gonna go ahead and just do it, already.

A team of Japanese animators and engineers on Wednesday unveiled plans to build a moving 18-metre (60-foot) tall Gundam robot, in a nod to millions of science fiction fans.

I hope that it’s understood, of course, that I am totally behind Japan building giant robots. This can be their thing. It’s an awesome thing. It’s all cool.

  1. I love mechs.
    Even though they’re about as impractical as it’s possible for a concept to be, they’re still awesome.
    Granted, if I were in charge of military appropriations, anyone advocating for them would be beaten with the nearest heavy object.

  2. I approve, so long as we start a giant robot program. I want to giant robot punch kaiju and space hippies too.

    C’mon SpaceX; think about the profits that would come from a bunch of nerds buying operational giant robots! We can’t let the Japanese have all the fun!
