On Wednesday, TV Asahi's Nanikore Chin Hakkei television program profiled Hitoshi Takahashi, a 60-year-old man who built a 15-ton walking beetle robot in his garage in the eastern Japanese prefecture of Ibaraki. As its Kabutom RX-03 name implies, this robot is actually the third beetle robot that Takahashi created; at 11 meters (about 36 feet) long and 9.5 meters (31 feet) wide, it is also his largest one yet.

It took Takhashi 11 years to build the robot, which can be controlled from the cockpit within or with a radio controller. Its name comes from kabuto mushi, the Japanese name for rhinoceros beetle, although it has wheels in its undercarriage in addition to the six insectoid legs.


Man..holy shit..I mean it's more or less an animalistic tank. It just looks cool but probably doesn't have the armor to ever be considered a weapon...but I imagine if a government agency ever got hold of it, and in 50+ years improved on the design, something similar to this could do some serious damage.

For now though, it just looks fucking cool XD
