Gundam’s Toru Furuya Launches KURATAS Mecha!

Yes, you’re not misreading anything: There is a real mecha out there, and its name is Kuratas.

Last weekend at the recently held Microsoft Windows Spring Festival at Japan, Suibadoshi Heavy Industries debuted its newest innovation, the Kuratas. It was used for the first time in public by voice actor Toru Furuya, who played as Amuro Ray in the first Gundam TV series.

Is this a premonition of sorts that Gundam’s future is upon us? Your guess is as good as ours.

Check out the photos and the demo video after the jump!
