Rideable iPhone-Controlled Battle Robot:
At Wonder Festival 2012 in Tokyo the rideable hydraulic 13 foot, 4-ton, iPhone controlled Suidobashi Heavy Industry battle robot KURATAS was revealed for the crowd to view. The mechanized marvel was created by artist Kogoro Kurata and robotics expert Wataru Yoshizaki. Those wanting to purchase the approximately $1.27 million USD robot, can customize their parts and paint job to their liking from the Suidobashi Heavy Industry website.

To begin shooting from the 6,000 BB per minute gatling gun you simply have to initiate a Smile Shot when ready, which is pretty funny to watch approximately 3 minutes into the How To Ride KURATAS video below:
