Two Big Robots

Lots of robot stories have been stacking up including a couple about really big robots. First, there's a giant robot sculpture called the WEEE Man made of 3.3 tons of surplus computers and electronic equipment. Then Sakakibara Kikai of Japan announced the Land Walker, a giant, two-legged walking robot said to be modelled after the Gundam. If you need your own giant robot, you can buy the Land Walker for just 36 million yen (about $343,000).

Watch the feet. They never leave the ground, even when it turns. I'll bet that it's skid- steering using tracks or wheels under its feet.

Regardless, it's pretty neat.
