ARCHAX Robot: The Real-Life Gundam Is Here, and It's Amazing
Have you ever dreamed of piloting a giant robot like Mobile Suit Gundam? If so, your dream may come true soon. Tokyo-based startup Tsubame Industries has unveiled its latest creation, the ARCHAX robot, a 15-foot-tall, 3.5-ton piloted mech suit.
What is ARCHAX Robot?
The ARCHAX robot is a four-wheeled, human-piloted robot that resembles a giant Gundam robot from the popular Japanese anime series. It has two modes: an upright “robot mode” and a “vehicle mode” in which it can travel up to 10 km/h.
In robot mode, the ARCHAX has a cockpit with monitors that receive images from cameras hooked up to the exterior. This allows the pilot to maneuver the robot’s arms and hands with joysticks from inside its torso.
