Build Your Own Custom Kuratas Robot

03 December of 2012 by

Japanese artist Kogoro Kurata has developed a giant 4-tonne, 13 feet tall robot that can be controlled through an iPhone.The Kuratas robot is a grey behemoth with a built-in pilot’s seat and hand-held controller that allows an operator to flex its massive arms, move it up and down and drive it at a speed of up to 10 kph (6 mph).

The robots we saw in our generation were always big and always had people riding them, and I don’t think they have much meaning in the real world,but it really was my dream to ride in one of them, and I also think it’s one kind of Japanese culture. I kept thinking that it’s something that Japanese had to do.

The robot, which took two years to pull together from concept to construction, also comes with a range of customised options from paint scheme to cup holders.

The sticker price for the most basic model alone is around 110 million yen (£837,000).

So, did you order your Kuratas robot yet? I know right, it’s a bit heavy in the pocket but hey, did you know that you can build your own custom Kuratas robot by trying out their build to order system?

When you’re in their build to order system, you can add these to your custom Kuratas robot:


Lohas launcher
Kuratas hand gun
Gatling gun
Organic rifle and
Pile bunker.


Carbon shield
Studless tire
Radio Unit
Pilotless Head
Third eye (coming soon)

You can also choose colors that will fit your personality and customize your coqpit like choosing an artificial leather seat or a genuine leather seat for an additional 12,000 USD. You can also add an iphone and drink holder to your order! Then lastly, add your cutom kuratas robot a name, cool huh?
