Japanese start-up creates $3 million robot inspired by anime series
Tokyo-based start-up Tsubame Industries has created a 4.5-meter-tall, four-wheeled robot called ARCHAX, taking inspiration from the Japanese animation series Mobile Suit Gundam. This 3,500kg robot, with a price tag of $3 million (around Rs. 25 crore), features a cockpit equipped with monitors that display images from exterior cameras. This allows the pilot to control the robot's arms and hands using joysticks from inside its torso. ARCHAX is set to make its debut at the Japan Mobility Show later this month.
