The World Largest 60 Feet Tall Gundam Robot That Can walk

At the Port of Yokohama, just south of Tokyo, the world's largest humanoid robot will come to life. Modeled on Gundam, the popular fictional robot - gundam robot that has been the subject of some 50 TV series and movies since 1979, plus a slew of video games and manga, the bot will tower nearly 60 feet tall and feature 24 degrees of freedom. So yes, this thing will be able to walk.

Earlier this year, Gundam Factory Yokohama announced that he world's tallest robot is set to premiere in a few months, and even COVID-19 can't stop it. While construction on this epic mech was initially delayed by COVID-19, it seems that things are back on schedule — so much so, that they let the Gundam out for a test walk.

Here are some more details:

Once finished, the robot will feature an incredible 24 degrees of freedom, meaning this thing will be able to walk. When everything is said and done, the whole thing will weigh in at about 25 tons, and that's actually pretty lightweight, considering how heavy it could have been.

Those weight efficiencies are thanks to careful engineering and design work, as outlined in a series of YouTube videos from Gundam Factory Yokohama. In one installment, we get a tour of where the workers designed, built, and assembled Gundam. From the metal fingertip to where the wrist will connect, the hand is about 6.5 feet.

Jun Narita, head of design, explains that special considerations about the types of material and motors had been taken into account because otherwise one hand could weigh as much as 1,300 pounds.

Giant robots and a pandemic. How much more cyberpunk can this reality get?
